These tropical muffins come from Heather of Cook It Up Paleo, an 18 year old blogger with a ton of creative, enticing recipes on her blog! Thank you so much Heather for sharing this recipe on HTG! I’ll let her take it away now.
Hey everybody! I’m so honored that Tess asked me to guest post on her blog! Tess is so talented and sweet, and I’m really excited to be posting!
When spring comes, I start wanting to eat fruit. It starts coming into season in the stores and it’s so fresh and delicious.
Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. I don’t know what it is, but I could eat whole pineapple in one sitting, except that my mother and friends love it just as much as I do.
I also have an affinity for coconut. I just can’t understand people not liking coconut. To each their own, but I like to put some form of coconut into almost everything I cook. This recipe has coconut oil, coconut flour, coconut cream, and coconut flakes!
These muffins are simple to make and are so moist. They make a delicious snack or dessert to bring to all the graduation parties that are coming up!
