    Looks FANTASTIC! Question: why not use mini muffin paper liners? I see you put the finished muffins in them; why not bake the muffins in the paper liners?

      Thanks Michelle! I don’t bake with the paper liners when there’s coconut oil in the batter because the liners come out oily. Once the muffins are baked and cooled I’ll pop them in a nice clean liner if I want to serve them fancy. If it’s just for the fam then I put them in a big tupperware sans liners and store in the fridge.

        Ah – that makes perfect sense! Have you tried freezing them? If so, do they freeze well?

          Hi Michelle, these muffins are always eaten so quickly that I haven’t had the chance to try freezing them! I’m sure it would do fine in an air-tight container.

    Could you use frozen blueberries instead of fresh?

    • Diana April 27, 2014 at 8:52 pm

      Hi Joann,
      Yes, you could also use frozen blueberries. Enjoy!

    Tried this recipe tonight and it turned out GREAT! Being allergic to nuts, I’ve been searching for a coconut based recipe and was so happy to find this one. This is actually my first time baking paleo and the success with this recipe makes me look forward to try out new ones!
