THINK AHEAD 

1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease the cups of your muffin tins with butter or non-stick cooking spray.

 

PREPARE

1. In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup honey together with a whisk. Add 1 egg and beat well. Mix in 1 cup kiwi berries and 1 1/4 cup milk, followed by 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, salt, and lemon zest.

2. Add 2 1/2 cups flour to the bowl and mix with a large spoon until just combined. A couple lumps are okay.

3. Pour the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with about 1 teaspoon of sugar each.

 

BAKE

1. Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

 

EAT

  1. Remove the muffins from the tin and place them on a rack to cool.
  2. Enjoy the muffins plain—or with a spread of butter or a drizzle of lemon juice.
