It’s starting to get colder outside, the days are shorter and I can feel winter is fast approaching. My desire to hibernate is kicking in – to stay home (where it’s warm) and eat comfort food all winter. These are the days that I especially like to fire up the oven and enjoy some warm baked goods, particularly first thing in the morning! Like these raspberry coconut muffins!

I found my inspiration for these coconut raspberry muffins from the freezer! I’m not big on throwing food out and being wasteful so when I have food that I can’t finish, I package it in clear bags/containers and toss them into the freezer.  I’ve had these local raspberries in my freezer for some time now and today I finally put them to good use.  Honestly, I didn’t feel like leaving the house to buy ingredients so whatever I had in my fridge I made do -plain Greek yogurt, shredded coconut, and frozen berries, yum.  Volia, raspberry coconut muffins! To make them even better I made cinnamon crumble topping for a buttery crunch! They turned out scrumptious. You could make these muffins with any variation of berries or nuts that you find in your freezer, but I really like the raspberry coconut combination.

The recipe makes a large amount of muffins which is great for sharing/gifting – or packing them up individually in the freezer and pulling them out for a snack later. I like to reheat them by broiling the coconut raspberry muffins in the oven with more butter, so they get a little crispy but stay moist with the melting butter as they warm in the oven.

I baked this recipe today, and it is moist, delicious, wonderful, and completely scrumptious! I added white chocolate chips with the raspberries to the batter before making them – I hope you don’t mind!

Delicious muffins! Definitely don’t skip the crumble topping, it really adds a lovely taste and texture to the beautifully soft cake beneath. It does make a lot of muffins, so I was going to share them with some friends, but after tasting them now I’m tempted to keep them for ourselves freeze some for later 😉

Life is uncertain, but dessert doesn't have to be!

These minty Christmas chocolate brownies are festive, addictive and hands down the best fudgy homemade brownies around. They make a cute addition to holiday platters and cookie exchanges.
