Pineapple/Oats Muffin (All Natural)

Connie "Kiyu" Guerrero


I got this recipe from my Daniel Fast Recipe Book. I tried it and I loved it! Because of my health problem, I've decided to use the Daniel Fast recipes for the rest of the year, not only for my health but mostly to be closer to God. I hope you all try this recipe and please do let me know what you think. Muffins are not always a good start for breakfast, but this one is really a WINNER!

How to Make Pineapple/Oats Muffin (All Natural)


  1. DATE HONEY PREPARATION: (Please prepare 1 day ahead)
    Pour dates and water into a small saucepan, making sure dates are completely covered (add additional water if necessary). Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 45-60 minutes or until dates are very soft and broken down. Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly for about 15 minutes. Pour mixture into a blender or food processor and puree until completely smooth. Sprinkle in cinnamon and stir well. Store in a sealed container in refrigerator.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly rub 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with olive oil, and set aside.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and stir well to combine. Scoop out mixture into muffin tin cups, allowing about 1/3 cup for each muffin. Bake 20 minutes, or until muffin tops are lightly browned. Serve warm.
  4. Recipe Notes

    * Make your own oat flour by placing old-fashioned rolled oats in a food processor or blender and process until fine (½ cup old-fashioned oats will yield about ½ cup ground oats).
    * Spread almond butter or Date Honey on top.
    * Flaxseed meal is a powder made from ground flaxseeds. It can be found in health food stores and some grocery stores. Instead of buying flaxseed meal, you can also grind whole flaxseeds at home by using a coffee or seed grinder.
    * The zest is the outermost, colorful skin of citrus fruits. Zest is often used to enhance flavor in recipes. The pith, or white membrane underneath the outside peel, has a bitter, unpleasant taste and should be avoided while zesting.
