And they were gone in 3, 2, 1…

They left and I stayed, hungry for more.

So, I invite you to join me for breakfast at my house tomorrow, and enjoy these delicious muffins, over some coffee.

I’ll set a pretty table. I’ll even let you bring a guest!

There’s nothing I like to do better than serve food to people!!

These muffins are so easy, they will take you just 10 minutes to throw together, 15 to bake and 10 more to cool down. So, in less than an hour, you can be eating delicious glazed muffins.

Seriously, you can have these before your 4th cup of coffee. (Don’t be ashamed to admit it, you are a coffee drinking machine in the morning. Or is it just me?)

Regardless, make sure you don’t skip the glaze, though. It makes all the difference. And, really, how often do you have glazed muffins for breakfast? Probably not often enough!

So, maybe you should wake up an hour before everyone else tomorrow, whip a batch of this up, and be the hero for a day!! (or for two days, in my case, today and tomorrow!)

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Maple Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 4 teaspoons maple syrup


  • Pre-heat oven to 375F.
  • Mix all-purpose flour, coconut, cranberries, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
  • In a measuring cup, mix melted coconut oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk them together.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
  • Mix until just combined.
  • Pour into lined muffin tins.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until just browned. Don’t overbake, or muffins will be dry and tough when they cool.
Maple Glaze
  • Mix all ingredients together and pour over muffins. If it seems too runny, add a bit more powdered sugar. If glaze seems too stiff, add more milk or maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon at a time. A little bit of liquid will go a long way!

    These look so amazing. I bought some shredded coconut the other day to do some recipe developing but I think I want to make these muffins instead! Did you use sweet or unsweetened shredded coconut?
