    Pina Colada Muffins

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Haven't tried these yet, they popped up on my facebook newsfeed. The photo looked amazing!

    List of Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 heaping cup sugar
    1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
    2 eggs, room temperature
    1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
    4 tablespoons butter, melted
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
    1 cup canned pineapple chunks, drained (I think I'd use crushed pineapple)


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and put muffins liners in muffin tin.

    Take out buttermilk and eggs, so they can come to room temperature.

    In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and coconut flakes. Set aside.

    In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and coconut extract.

    Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Donít overmix or your muffins will be dry.

    Chop pineapple chunks to make mini chunks and then gently fold into muffin batter. Again, folding just enough to distribute pineapple bits. Sprinkle top with a little coconut that will toast during baking time.

    Bake for about 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins feel set when gently pressed. Cool a few minutes in the tin and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
