  1. Make topping:  Put all ingredients in a small bowl and blend with your fingers until it resembles small crumbs.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease muffin tins, or line with paper liners.
  3. Whisk together first 4 batter ingredients in a small bowl.   Continue to whisk as you drizzle in coconut oil, and mix until well blended.
  4. In a separate, larger bowl mix flours, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add berries to flour mixture and toss gently to mix.  Add wet ingredients and blend gently (batter will be thick.)
  6. Spoon batter into muffin cups.  Sprinkle topping mix evenly over batter.
  7. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.
  8. Cool muffins in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool on rack to room temperature.
