Blueberry Coconut Muffins (gluten free)

One fine morning, us girls, decided to make muffins together. Now, you may be wondering why these muffins are gluten free with all the bread posts on our site.

With all of the gluten free hype, I thought I’d cut it out of my diet for a while, reintroduce it, and see how my body reacted.
