I made these both with and without pineapple. They were both good. I just gave one to a colleague and he said "delicious"! I think they're rather light, so the guilt factor is low!

How To Make pineapple-coconut muffins

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 muffin tin with cupcake liners, grease lightly. In a small saucepan, warm your coconut oil just until it melts. It should still be on the cool side. In a medium bowl, whisk together your flours, baking powder and salt. Stir 1/2 cup shredded coconut. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, sugar, coconut oil, coconut milk* crushed, drained pineapple and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients until just combined. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups then sprinkle the top with remaining 1/4 cup coconut. Bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out batter-free, about 20 minutes. Transfer muffins to a rack and let cool. *full fat Greek yogurt may be used in place of coconut milk.
