Plump, ripe blueberries and sweet juicy peaches are one of my favorite fruit combinations. Bake them into a bite size muffin and you’ve got the perfect snack or addition to eggs at breakfast.

Head down to your local farmer’s market or produce aisle this morning to pick up the star ingredients for this recipe. Coconut and almond flours work great for grain free baked goods. I stuck with just coconut flour here to make these super easy and quick to whip up. Baking tip: whisk coconut flour into the batter to incorporate well (then you won’t have “pockets” of flour in your finished product).

If you have kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews involve them. Little people love putting paper muffin liners (especially mini ones) into the pan. Have them help you whisk or add ingredients into a large bowl.

A delicious 60-calorie summery pastry!
