Recently, I started using coconut flour as a gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour in certain baked goods. I wanted to create a simple muffin that leveraged the mild flavors of coconut flour, coconut milk and coconut oil, and blend them with a fresh berry. I'm fairly new to gluten-free baking so this is one of my early GF creations, but I hope to adapt many more.
