Pineapple coconut oatmeal muffins

May 5, 2016

I love creating delicious muffins to have on hand for either breakfast for the week or an afternoon snack. I also love pineapple and coconut together so these muffins were bound to happen! I can’t even begin to tell you how incredibly scrumptious these muffins are and only 3 smart points each.

    The directions call for flour but it’s not listed in the ingredients?

      Hi, yes I would store in the fridge, and if your not eating within about 3 days then freeze them.

    These were yummy, thank you for the recipe!! I used 5 T. of powdered stevia instead off the brown sugar & that was just right for my hubby who likes everything sweet!!! ?

    I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE MUFFINS!!! I switched the pineapple for apples since I love apples better but they are so delicious and filling! Im a huge oatmeal person so to find a healthier alternative recipe that doesnt even use flour is amazing!! Thank you!

    I’m not a fan of coconut so I’m going to try these with sliced almonds (also 5sp).

    OMG!!! These are absolutely amazing! I added a scoop of vanilla trutein protein powder just to bump it up for myself, and they were great for a mid morning snack. Not overly sweet which was really nice! I also made the blueberry lemon greek yogurt muffins and they are a hit as well!!

      I think canned will be ok as long as you drain all the juices

    Hi! Do you think I could use three whole eggs?

      Hi 2 egg whites would be equal to 1 egg so I would just use 1 but yes it should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    These look delicious and I cant’ wait to m curious as to why the pineapple was excluded from the nutritional information?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle May 17, 2019 at 5:29 pm

      I use to not include it because on weight watchers fruit is a zero point food and it got confusing with the numbers but now I include all ingredients and just let people know that the nutri numbers shown incl all ingredients so if they enter them in the App they may get a higher number, it still confuses people though lol .. hope that makes sense

      Hi Candi, the nutritional info is listed in the recipe post at the bottom, compared to store bought muffins I’d definitely consider these low calorie ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck on your journey!
