Raspberry and Coconut Muffins

Raspberry and Coconut Muffins

Just another muffin for your perusal.  It was a really hot weekend here in Melbourne when I cooked these so I limited having the oven on for just one 30 minute period.

My Mexican Tortilla Pie and these muffins made the cut and were cooked together to provide dinner and a week's worth of lunch box treat in one hit.

I've finally started to play with coconut flour I've had sitting in the pantry for a while.  I'm still working it out, hence only using 1/4 cup of it here to start with.  You can easily substitute the coconut flour for an extra 1/4 cup of self raising flour.  I do know that coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid, so I increased the buttermilk.  Normal milk can also be substituted for the buttermilk.

I've kept the sugar content quite low, but I didn't use my apple sauce substitution as I didn't want to play around with other ingredients too much while I was already playing with the flour.

Another successful lunch box batch up - happy days!
