Β Okay, so before I bombard you with more delicious, scrumptious, full-of-chocolate-and-calories desserts, I’m going to share with you my all-time favourite muffin base recipe, and I’ve added blueberries, and replaced butter with coconut oil to help you (and me!) stay on track with healthy eating this year! Ditch the chocolate bar snacks, and grab one of these muffins – you’ll feel better for it πŸ˜‰ Of course I added chocolate chips (duh!), but you can add healthier alternatives, e.g. dried fruit, or nuts.

This is my go-to recipe when I fancy snacking on more healthier, but delicious muffins. Not to mention, they’re SO easy to make, and are baked, and ready to eat in under 30 minutes! This recipe also makes a small batch of only 12 muffins, because who needs the temptation of 20 when you’re watching your waistline?!

Coconut oil is considered a healthy plant oil, and does not contain cholesterol or trans fat. It is also non-hydrogenated. Coconut oil is primarily made up of medium-chain fatty acids that the body can easily convert to energy instead of storing as fat. It contains about 50% lauric acid, which supports the immune system and boosts metabolism.

    Gorgeous as always. My hubs love blueberry muffins. I always use half yogurt to cut down on the butter. I’d like to try making them with coconut oil. Will the muffins taste like coconut at all?

      Thanks, AiPing! The spices, blueberries, and chocolate chips cover up the slight taste of coconut oil you may taste if you didn’t add them πŸ™‚

    Love the mix of spices with the blue berries – YUMMM! I grew up using coconut oil on our skin and hair and my grandmother used it for almost everything she cooked and baked. It is a staple in my kitchen!

    I’m planning a big family breakfast for this weekend (it’s our Christmas) and I just asked my hubby tonight if I need to add some sort of muffin to round out the menu….he voted no, but after seeing this recipe, I vote yes!
