These paleo Pina Colada Muffins with Pecan Crumble are naturally sweetened with honey and pineapple. They’re gluten-free and dairy-free, too.
Yesterday I was remembering how much I loved these paleo Pear and Cranberry Muffins, but I wanted to try a new flavour combination. With my Pina Colada Smoothie in the blender and some leftover pineapple in the fridge, the choice was obvious: pineapple and coconut. I branded them “Pineapple Coconut Muffins” until it finally dawned on me that most normal people call that combination Pina Colada.
So, I changed my blog post title to Pina Colada Muffins with Pecan Crumble. I like the way it sounds and I really liked the way these taste! I used the Pear and Cranberry Muffin recipe, but substituted pineapple for the pear and coconut for the cranberries. These paleo Pina Colada muffins turned out just as tender as the original recipe. They’re naturally sweet and totally satisfying. I topped them with some chopped pecans for extra crunch.
Just mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another, make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and gently stir in the wet ingredients and the coconut. These muffins take only 10 – 15 minutes to mix up. Pop them in the oven and you’ll have the kitchen cleaned up by the time the timer is ringing.
