Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup pineapple juice (reserved from can)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup coconut butter
  • 1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained and juice reserved
  • Shredded coconut, for topping
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Place oatmeal in a food processor (or heavy duty blender) and process until it's the consistency of a slightly chunky flour.
  3. Add whole wheat flour, flax seed, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar to the food processor and pulse a few times to combine.
  4. Add the eggs, pineapple juice, vanilla and coconut butter. Process until smooth. Add the pineapple chunks and pulse a few times to just barely break up the pineapple.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle tops with shredded coconut.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes, until edges are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Cool a few minutes in the muffin tin, then transfer muffins to a wire rack.
