"This recipe was devised when I had a lot of limes on hand. I'm sure you could use any citrus fruit you like. The key is using healthy ingredients! This muffin is a moderately sweet breakfast treat but much healthier than sweet cereal. The coconut oil is very healthy for you, and so is the flaxseed. Never use margarine! Always use non-aluminum baking powder. I use white whole wheat flour, it comes from white wheat instead of red wheat. These are always a hit at my house."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/3 cups
virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
1 1/3 cups
fresh lime juice
Made a 1/2 recipe & got 12 muffins. Though not really wild about these as a muffin. Both the hubby & I thought they tasted more like a cupcake and probably would be good with a lime and/or coconut icing. Most likely won't be making again.
Really good. As the recipe calls for, I used grapeseed oil, but I had WIldtree lemon grapeseed oil, so used that. Rather than the whole wheat flour, I used coconut flour, so I doubled the milk since more liquid is needed when using coconut flour. I didn't add the flaxseed because I didn't have it. I did use the all purpose flour amount as called for. I sprinkled the tops with coconut, so when they cooked, the coconut toasted. I am not sure what size muffin tin the recipe writer used, but I used standard cups and it made about 20 muffins and I only needed to bake them for 20 minutes.
Pretty good. I had none of the special oils, so I just used regular old vegetable oil, and it worked just fine. I've been on a mission to use up some of the coconut I have had in the cupboard for what seems like forever. It's still good, but I wanted to make sure it stays that way, so I thought these would be a good thing to try, especially as I also have flaxseed meal to use up. These are a hearty, somewhat limey muffin. This makes 24 regular muffins, so bear that in mind if you are looking to make a small batch. You will only get a small batch if you make large muffins. With smaller muffins, I baked for about 25 minutes, which worked well. Thanks for the recipe!
Tasted great! Perfect hint of lime and coconut. I cut some of the sugar and replaced a cup of oil with a cup of applesauce. Only critique is it made way more than 10 muffins!
