Pineapple-Pecan Muffins!


Move over, Spongebob! You don't hold a candle to this pineapple lover. I'd live in one too, if I could.

{When I was a kid, the best part of the Christmas ham was the pineapple & cherries. In honor of my childhood taste buds, I think I'm going to add some dried cherries next time. Sounds pretty tasty, doesn't it?!}

Here's my simple pineapple muffin recipe, with some pecan and coconuts for some simple goodness:

Pineapple Pecan Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 {generous} cup crushed pineapple, drained
Sweetened coconut {garnish}


1-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and grease 12 muffin tins.
2-In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, ground ginger and brown sugar.
3-In another bowl combine egg, milk, oil and pineapple.
4-Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
5-Mix in chopped pecans.
6-Divide batter evenly among 12, greased muffin tins and top with coconut.
7- Bake at 400 F. for about 16-18 minutes or until done.
8- Eat & enjoy! =)


Happy Thursday!
