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
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...
We'd love to know if you give any of our muffin recipes a try. Let us know how they turn out or if you put a different spin on them. :)
This is the 16th installment in what will be, Lord willing, our year-long muffin adventure: Muffin Mondays! 52 Mondays, 52 Muffins. (There are 35 more to come, stay tuned...)
