Want a pineapple muffin? They’re scrumpdillyicious!
I love the word “scrumpdillyicious.“ It completely describes how I feel about these muffins.
If I have to turn on my oven to bake (I have an aversion to baking, can you tell?), then it’s muffins I usually opt for.
I’m a muffin making fan because I can turn out a healthier treat that usually makes Mike happy, and is what he terms “blog worthy.”
I have my own muffin making style. I rarely mix the wet ingredients first, then add the dry ingredients like a true baker would.
You can see why baking isn’t my thing. I lack the patience and preciseness required to turn out bakery quality goods.
And that’s just fine by me. I’m happy with my lightly sweetened, whole grain pineapple muffins. I’ve got muffin making down to an art now.
But I have to say, the trick to making a lighter whole grain muffin is the Bob’s Whole Wheat Pastry Flour I’m so fond of. It definitely gives baked goods a lighter texture over a heavier standard whole wheat flour.
Pineapple tidbits give these mini muffins a burst of sunshine flavor.

And if you really want a treat, break out your bread machine to make these yeasty apple breakfast muffins. I never could decide if these were really muffins, or actually breakfast buns. But since they look like muffins, that’s what I decided to call them.
