Muffin Monday - Whole Wheat Pineapple Muffins

Happy Monday! I trust you all had a blessed time with family and friends celebrating Resurrection Day over the weekend. We had a houseful and enjoyed visiting with family.

We missed those who couldn't join us (my mom, Jess & Zack, and my two sisters along with their families), but we had a good old silly time anyway -- I know it's a little blurry but just had to share...

Notice my dad sitting in the middle holding his two great-grandchildren, acting all dignified and above our silliness. :)

Anyway, with a houseful of people to feed, I baked up a batch of these delicious muffins for breakfast Saturday morning and had planned to use them for today's Muffin Monday post, but while sipping on my morning coffee, I came upon a recipe for pineapple muffins and decided they would be a great way to use some of the leftover pineapple I have in my fridge. I'm glad I did 'cause they're really good and my kids like them. A lot. Being asked for a 3rd muffin is a sure sign we've got a winner!

Today's recipe is once again from Muffins & More by Jean Pare.

These are a quick-to-make basic muffin with a light whole wheat flavor. A small bit of pineapple adds sweetness to each bite.

Whole Wheat Pineapple Muffins
makes 12 muffins

2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. organic sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. sea salt
1 egg
6 T. melted butter
1 c. milk
1/2 c. crushed pineapple, well drained

1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease muffin tin (we like to use coconut oil).

2. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.

3. Stir dry ingredients with a whisk to blend.

4. In a small bowl, beat egg until frothy.

5. Add melted butter, milk, and pineapple to egg.

6. Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring just enough to blend -- don't over mix your muffins! Batter will be lumpy.

7. Fill greased muffin cups 3/4 full.

8. Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes (ours were done at 18 min.).

9. Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy warm with, or without, a bit of butter...

Bon appetit!

  7. Enjoy! My kiddos loved these. :)

  8. love to try this pineapple muffins, thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul blog hop.

  9. Do you think it would work with fresh pineapple (mashed up). I know that fresh and canned have some differences (can't use fresh in jello or it won't set), but I don't know what the chemistry is behind it.

  10. Jen, Yes, by all means, use fresh! Hope you enjoy them. :)

  11. These muffins sound wonderful. I recently purchased some einkorn grain and am planning on making bread with it tomorrow...but I am also going to grind some extra grain and make your muffins too! My family loves pineapple.



  12. Mary, Thanks for leaving such a nice comment. :) I sure hope your family enjoys our muffin recipe and that they turn out well for you. Blessings, Lisa :)

  13. I just made this muffin and it was amazing! I put coconut flakes in the batter and added A LOT of cinnamon and nutmeg. Instead of butter I used coconut butter for the batter. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. :)

    1. So glad you enjoyed these and made them your own by switching things up a bit and adjusting the recipe to satisfy your taste buds! Happy baking, ~Lisa :)
