Recipe by Chantal Pare'
"Like a ray of tropical sunshine in the morning, combining the taste of banana, coconut, and pineapple with just a hint of nutmeg."

1 1/2 cups
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, well drained
These muffins are great! I modified them by doing half wheat, half white flour and adding a dash of cinnamon. I also used three bananas and most of a 20 oz can of pineapple, because the point of making this recipe was to use them up. One modification I highly recommend is using the drained off pineapple juice for cooking the oatmeal, it adds natural sweetness and gives it a kick. The muffins needed to cook for longer than indicated, closer to 35 or 40 minutes.
I realized after I'd mixed these that there's no fat (butter or oil) in them. I'm assuming the coconut milk is the sub for that. I did use authentic canned coconut milk. These muffins completely stuck to the paper liners and had a weird texture. I didn't like the smell or taste either. They did not taste like pineapple, coconut or banana. I won't make these again.
I made this recipe exactly how it was published and it smelled and tasted a little strange. I don't think the pineapple mixed well with the other parts. Other than that they were ok
This is one of those recipes that sounded so good but was a disappointment. They turned out very mushy inside even with extra cooking time added on. The flavors were too mild.
I played with this recipe a bit to suit me, but they came out tasting pretty decent. I used skim milk instead of coconut and upped the extract to a full teaspoon to try to balance that, I used upwards of 1/2 teaspoon I'd say of fresh grated nutmeg, used about 12 ounces of pineapple, and used brown sugar instead of white because I just like brown sugar. My muffins looked gorgeous in the oven, but then fell flat once I pulled them out. They were browned on top but kind of raw on the inside, too. I don't know if that will fix itself overnight, but the flavor isn't bad. It's a bunch of mild flavors coming at you, but they don't all hit you at once...they're nice. I think I'll like them more if they firm up and aren't so soggy. Dates would be AMAZING in here.
This recipe is good - I used applesauce instead of pineapple and added shredded coconut. Lovely tropical flavour with a chewy exterior and soft, fluffy inside. My girls loved them with butter!
Very weird...texture wise...were exteremly tough. Maybe something I did wrong...though I did follow the recipe as it is
We loved these! I used whole wheat pastry flour and turbinado sugar instead. The second time I made it, I added dark sweet cherries, and it was even better. I had to use vanilla extract, so I added some unsweetened coconut flakes too. I'm sure I'll make these again. Since these don't rise much, just fill the batter all the way to the top for a perfect muffin. I also took the suggestion of cooking the oatmeal in pineapple juice. Thanks!
