Pinapple Coconut Muffin Recipe


The main reason I baked these muffins is that I had leftover crushed pineapple from our recent Vietnamese beef fondue party. The more romantic reason I tell my husband Lulu is that I’m always thinking about him and I want to please him all the time. Given his sweet tooth, Lulu always enjoys a hot cup of fruity white tea and a few sweet treats, so I think he’ll fall for it .

The muffins are flavored with pineapple, coconut and lemon chocolate chips.
