Coconut Pineapple Muffins (GF)
COCONUT PINEAPPLE MUFFINS
The pineapple makes these muffins! If you have the carb allowance, add a little more, but dice it finely.
21/4 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix
11/2 tsp baking powder (7 mL)
1/2 tsp baking soda (2 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
Liquid sucralose to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
1/4 cup granulated erythritol (60 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
14 fl. oz can unsweetened coconut milk (414 mL)
2/3 cup finely desiccated, unsweetened coconut (125 mL)
2/3 cup finely diced pineapple, (150 mL)
from canned pineapple in juice, drained
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In large bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In food processor, process eggs, liquid sucralose, OR SPLENDA® Granular, erythritol and vanilla extract. Add half coconut milk and dry ingredients; process briefly. Add remainder of coconut milk and process until the batter thickens up. Stir in 1/2 cup (125 mL) coconut and all the pineapple.
Scoop batter into 12 greased muffin cups. Sprinkle batter with remaining coconut or keep it to sprinkle on the baked muffins. Bake 35 minutes. Cover lightly with foil during the last 10 minutes.
Helpful Hints: The longer baking time is due to the high moisture content. No other fat is required thanks to the coconut milk.
