These moist whole-wheat muffins are a great addition to your day.  The pineapple and brown sugar provide sweetness, but if you add raisins you’ll get a bit more.  For a deluxe version, add coconut.

    I have the ingredients that I need for these muffins on my grocery list, and we are going to Walmart tomorrow. I will make them tomorrow afternoon, and I believe these muffins will receive a 5 star rating. They sound delicious and I believe “Pop” will love them also.

    These are great! I replaced the canola oil with unsweetened applesauce, and the eggs with 6 Tbsp of aquafaba (the liquid from canned chickpeas), and used fresh pineapple (because I already had it cut up, just had to crush it a bit) and they still turned out fantastic! Looking forward to having one on my way to work tomorrow!! 🙂
