Cranberry Orange Coconut Muffins

Well, these weren’t scones but these were made on Scone Day.  As I said before, I went a little crazy in the kitchen…

These are a slight variant of the cranberry lime muffins I made on an earlier date except I may like these more.  I really like cranberry orange and then add some coconut…and you are in major delicious breakfast muffin territory.

1 large egg

1 large egg yolk
