Mixed Berry Muffins with Coconut

These muffins are too good not to share! They are also great because they can be modified according to your families preference.  Change up the fruit, take out the coconut, add chocolate chips… the options are endless!

Here is my recipe:

IMG_1845These muffins have fresh fruit and lemon zest to give them a delicious and fresh taste!

IMG_1844Whole blueberries, raspberries and chopped strawberries are bursting from these muffins!

IMG_1846My only change would be to add more fruit and distribute it more evenly through each muffin so they are more moist and fluffy.

IMG_1847I love the flecks of cinnamon in the muffins

IMG_1849I also love the pieces of sweet coconut and yellow from the lemon zest on top!

Cranberry Bread

In preparation for Thanksgiving I made a delicious and moist cranberry bread.  However, the best part about this bread is that it can be used next week at your Thanksgiving celebration or any other day of the year! It is full of tart cranberries, lemon zest and topped with a crusty sugary crust!  Seriously…. go make this bread!
