This Coconut Pineapple Oatmeal Muffins recipe is moist and gently sweet. It’s a big hit at my house.
I’ve been baking lots of muffins lately. My nine year old daughter has become a bit obsessed with sweets. Rather than shutting her off cold, I’ve been making her various oatmeal muffins. I add healthier ingredients and keep the size moderate. She has been loving them and no longer cries and demandingly points at the coffee shop as I drive by anymore (She is non-verbal autistic). She actually indicated that she prefers the muffins I’ve been making her over the big extra sugary ones from the shop.
The Coconut Pineapple Oatmeal muffins recipe I’m sharing today was whipped up while I was on the phone with a friend. The muffins ened out not just tasting great and being moist, but I got exactly 12 standard sized muffins from the batter. Hence, I just had to share.
