High Protein Coconut Muffins

These delicious and satisfying coconut muffins are high in protein and gluten-free.  Each muffin has half an egg and the flour is coconut flour, which is naturally gluten-free, high fiber, and yummy.  Coconut four is my favorite gluten-free flour.  This recipe also comes courtesy of Myra Kornfeld.
