  • 1 cup Crushed pineapple

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a muffin tin.
  • Stir the remaining ingredients into the bowl until the batter is evenly mixed.
  • Portion into the liners. Bake 20 minutes or until muffins have domed and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out mostly clean.
  • Once cooled, if you loosely cover overnight either on the counter or refrigerated, the liners peel off easily, and the flavour and texture are even better on the next day.
