Muffin Week Day 2: Pina Colada Muffins

Happy second day of muffin week.  Hope that all these ideas give you a chance to make something terrific to start off your day.  I wanted to have a muffin that would remind me of a pina colada.
Here’s the light tasting treat that ensued.
I started with nice, fresh pineapple and chopped in into a 1/2 inch dice. 
In a medium bowl I combined; 2 cups chopped pineapple, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 cup shredded coconut (I got unsweetened), 1 cup vanilla flavoured yogurt and 2 eggs.

I added 2 cups of flour and 2 tsp baking powder.

Now this recipe will make 18 standard muffins but I divided them up into 12 regular sized tins and 12 in a donut pan (just for fun).
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 (watch after 12 if you use the tinier pans).

    These look wonderful! Wish they were gluten free. Maybe I can adapt them? :) Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

  5. Jane Craske says:

    Ok, to gluten free them. Let's say you replace the flour with an equal mixture of 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup rice flour, a T. of xanthum gum and 1/4 cup of potato starch. That SHOULD do the trick. You might need a bit more rice flour.
