Vegan Brunch: Bakery Style Marionberry Coconut Muffins

Folks, I'd like to introduce you to the result of last night's relaxing evening in: Marionberry Coconut Muffins based on the Bakery Style Berry Muffins in Vegan Brunch.

Their birth, er baking, topped off my first night home in a long stressful and glorious while delightfully. I started with a ton of housework, embarked into Season 3 of Dexter, hung out with my cats and hit the sack by 10pm! Did I mention delightful? I'm well rested!

These are made with hand picked marionberries I had frozen, lite coconut milk (leftover from a tester for Isa's in-progress 'healthy' cookbook!), almond extract and the addition of 1/4 cup of shredded coconut flakes. I used my 'big' muffin pan, a hand me down from the wonderful Julie Hasson, to bake them in.

Shockingly enough, I never made these during the Vegan Brunch testing last year, but feel free to check out my ultimate testing post here if you're interested in what I did make.

Yum! I've never even heard of marionberries, but I'm down with all berries, so I'm sure marionberry and I would be fast friends...especially if she was hanging out with my best bud coconut.
