Blueberry & coconut muffins

A spot of Sunday morning experimental baking with a two year old helper. Recipe for disaster? Perhaps.

I found a nice looked gdfree recipe on the food network website and then totally destroyed it in an attempt to make it more coconutty. I think I was perhaps a bit coconutty to do that but I have to say nowΒ I am enjoying a kitchen smelling of coconuts, and that alright by me. Have to see how they taste of course.
