Tropical Muffins

You had us at crushed pineapple as we immediately associated this recipe for tropical muffins with an island vacation. From the immune system support, pineapples are also rich in potassium and have anti-inflammatory benefits — we’ll be reaching for a muffin this weekend! How about you?


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, ½ the amount can be substituted with whole wheat flour
1 cup oats, or bran cereal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup raisins, or chopped nuts
1 cup banana, mashed or shredded zucchini
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple
2 T vegetable oil
2 eggs, 4 egg whites or ½ cup egg beaters
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar


Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl

In another bowl, combine eggs, oil, pineapple, and bananas until well blended. Stir in raisins. Add liquid mixture to flour mixture, stirring to blend evenly.

Spoon mixture in muffin cups, lined with paper or sprayed with vegetable oil

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
