I was grocery shopping at Trader Joe's this morning and couldn't pass up the beautiful organic raspberries they had on the shelf. As I was completing my shopping, I decided those raspberries would be perfect with some lemon and coconut in muffin form. I don't know about you, but raspberry, lemon, and coconut are all tastes that remind me of summer. I love to have muffins around for breakfast, snacks, and when that after-dinner sweet tooth sometimes hits.
