These muffins are great! I modified them by doing half wheat, half white flour and adding a dash of cinnamon. I also used three bananas and most of a 20 oz can of pineapple, because the point of making this recipe was to use them up. One modification I highly recommend is using the drained off pineapple juice for cooking the oatmeal, it adds natural sweetness and gives it a kick. The muffins needed to cook for longer than indicated, closer to 35 or 40 minutes.

It's A New Day

I realized after I'd mixed these that there's no fat (butter or oil) in them. I'm assuming the coconut milk is the sub for that. I did use authentic canned coconut milk. These muffins completely stuck to the paper liners and had a weird texture. I didn't like the smell or taste either. They did not taste like pineapple, coconut or banana. I won't make these again.


I made this recipe exactly how it was published and it smelled and tasted a little strange. I don't think the pineapple mixed well with the other parts. Other than that they were ok
