Recipe: Raspberry, Coconut and Chia Muffins

Raspberry and Coconut Muffin

In recent months muffins have become a bit of a staple in our house. Reubs often starts work very, very early and I like to have muffins on hand so that he can grab one for breakfast on his way out the door. Along with my Roasted Pumpkin and Parmesan Muffins, these Raspberry, Coconut and Chia muffins have become a fast favourite.

Raspberry and Coconut Muffins

Makes approx. 12 muffins

1 Cup Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
1 Cup Desicated Coconut
1/2 Cup Almond Meal
1/2 Cup Raw Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Cup Coconut Cream
1 Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
At Least 1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Raspberries (I use about 2 cups!)

Raspberry Muffins

1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
2. Combine all dry ingedients together in a large bowl.
3. Mix in egg and coconut cream and stir until well combined.
4. Stir in raspberries. (Use lots. The more raspberries the better, I think!)
5. Divide mixture into muffin cases and bake for 20 minutes or until firm and slightly golden.

These are especially delicious eaten when still warm. Go on!

    Katie. I made something similar the other day, however, I used coconut flour as I recently learned of a gluten intolerance and I used cherries and cacao powder. “Cherry Ripe” muffins I told my children and they were a hit.

    These look delicious! I love using coconut milk in muffins and I agree, the more berries the better!

      Seriously, putting coconut milk/cream in muffins was a major revelation for me. It is SO good! x

    Okay, so I know that this is completely off topic but I’m moving soon, to christchurch because of my dads work and I’m sort of scared and need of some reassurance and tips.
    Do you have any tips or things for making new friends and finding cool thrift stores and other things? It would be much appreciated.

      Moving is always scary. We’ve done a lot of it, so I guess we are quite used to the upheaval now, but I don’t think it ever really gets easy… As fas as meeting people goes, I think the best way is to just be a part of things. Work, school, sports teams, craft groups etc. Almost all of our friends were met through either work or study. I think it’s really important to get out in your new community too. Just take the time to explore. You’ll be able to find anything you need in your new area with a quick google search, but it’s not until you get out and wander that you’ll really get to know the place and uncover local treasures. Most of all just have faith that everything will be ok! It might take a while to meet people and feel at home in your new city, but I’m sure it will be a wonderful adventure:)

        Thankyou for that!
