Crushed Pineapple Muffins

by Kristen

If you have a can of crushed pineapple in your pantry, you must bake these super moist crushed pineapple muffins!  You will love the fresh flavor of these muffins, and this easy muffin recipe will become one you will want to keep handy! 

These homemade muffins have a  super moist consistency, are very flavorful, and are filled with crushed pineapple!  This batter is super easy to mix.  These pineapple muffins make a delicious breakfast, dessert, or snack that your entire family will love!

This recipe is inspired by a favorite applesauce muffin recipe I love to make.  I replaced the applesauce with crushed pineapple and added vanilla instead of cinnamon.  You will want to stock up on crushed pineapple after trying these muffins!  These muffins are a delicious treat!

Pineapple has potassium, vitamin c, protein, fiber, and calcium.  These muffins will pump lots of nutrition into your kids.

1 cup of sugar

Two eggs

Ingredient add-ins

you can add shredded coconut, dried cranberries, or cinnamon to these muffins to give them more depth.
