Fun with Amy & Brian’s + RECIPE

Coconut water is nasty! It’s pungent and disconcerting, and the flavor just won’t leave your mouth! 


This is what I used to think about coconut water. That was before I tried Amy & Brian’s Coconut Water made from fresh, young coconuts. 

Amy & Brian’s Coconut Water is unbelievably refreshing. My father, who spent time in Guam as a child (military brat), said it reminded him of drinking straight from a coconut. A&B is so much sweeter than any other coconut water/juice on the market, and has a remarkable freshness. It’s also packaged in steel, so bonus points for being environmentally friendly. 

Their original and “with pulp” varieties have the exact same taste, but the pulp has little sweet, chewy bits of coconut meat dispersed throughout. This adds, not only, texture, but extra fiber!

The cinnamon coconut water, my favorite, has an added warmth and a KICK that really accentuates the sweet, coconut flavor. 
We all know coconut water is versatile. It can be consumed as it, blended in smoothies, put in oatmeal, or even used to make coffee, but have you ever thought of baking with it? 

Check out my recipe using Amy & Brian’s Coconut Water with Cinnamon.


Cinnamon Coco-Nut Muffins



1/2 cup coconut oil

1 cup coconut sugar

2 organic eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup applesauce

2/3 cup Amy & Brian’s Coconut Water with Cinnamon

1 cup oat flour

1/4 cup millet flour

1/4 cup brown rice flour

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


Preheat your oven to 355 degrees, and prepare a muffin tin with paper liners.

Cream together coconut oil and coconut sugar.

Beat in eggs, one at a time. 

Once combined, add in the applesauce and Amy & Brian’s Coconut Water with Cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, whisk your dry ingredients (oat flour through cinnamon) together. 

Slowly stir your dry mixture into the wet.

Fold in walnuts and coconut.

Pour batter into your prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 20 minutes. 

This should make about 12 muffins.

Enjoy the Coco-Nutty Goodness!!!!
