Hi friends!  It’s Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later!  I’m back with another sweet recipe to share!  I can’t believe there’s only one month of summer left, and there is nothing more summery to me than a fruity treat!  I’m a sucker for berries: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries.  I eat them all!  Today’s dessert/breakfast treat is a blueberry muffin with coconut extract and coconut flakes inside, topped with a delicious coconut streusel on the outside to create these Coconut Blueberry Muffins!

I’m also a sucker for anything coconut, and I usually pair it with lime, but I absolutely loved this coconut blueberry combo!  There is just something about a light fruity muffin that has summer brunch written all over it!

My friend Yvonne from Tried and Tasty, actually did this post recently about using frozen blueberries to replace fresh blueberries in baked goods and I really wanted to give it a try, which is why I made these muffins.  It worked great, although I shoved a few extra frozen berries on top, without doing the simple trick, which is why they bled a little bit, but if you bite into one of these muffins, you will see a beautifully white muffin with polka dot blueberries.  It’s a great trick, so go read how to do it!

Blueberries also seem to be on sale right now, so I think it’s a sign you should make these. 😉  Enjoy!
