Lemon Blueberry Muffins with Greek Yogurt & Coconut Oil

I am a blueberry hoarder.

When I see them in the store I have to buy at least 2 lbs, and they’ll be gone in a day. Miles doesn’t even like blueberries.

But seriously, how delicious are they right now?

These are no ordinary muffins. So moist. So fresh and lemony.

And made with coconut oil?

Who knew that could all be possible?
