That’s a mouthful I know… I just felt like I couldn’t leave any of those three magical ingredients out. Because they are super magical and these muffins are super good.
See I needed to try to make something on the healthy side. I have been eating too many of my baked goods and it has started to show. At first I just used the “these pants must have shrunk in the wash” line, but it has finally hit me: my metabolism is slowing down and eating buttery sweets every day doesn’t help. It’s really pretty annoying. I used to be able to eat desserts when I wanted and never work out and not really gain weight. (Ah even I hate myself for typing that.) Now I still don’t really work out, and I also eat whatever I want, but my pants don’t fit. So I am going to try to sometimes make things I don’t feel guilty eating and also try to workout more. Sound like a plan?
I also loved the idea of blackberries in muffins. Surprisingly- I didn’t find many recipes online that paired these ingredients even though it seemed so good in my mind. While these are made with whole wheat flour, they are SO good. I actually ate breakfast this morning and that is a feat I tell you. I feel like the berries could easily be subbed out for whatever type you have on hand. And the toasted coconut was an extra touch I added since I was also using coconut oil. Yum!
