Just made these with my five year old and they are delicious!! Lots of ingredients, but well worth it. Will make a great grab and go breakfast as we rush off to school. We swapped out the raisins and nuts in the batter for dried cherries and diced dried apricots because that's what my son loves and they are a perfect combination of sweet, tart and hearty.
Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins
Glistening like sticky buns, these unusual muffins are packed with wholesome ingredients--vegetables, fruit and whole grains--so you can feel good about serving them to your family. If you prefer to make simple carrot muffins for lunchboxes or breakfasts-on-the-go, omit the topping; sprinkle 2 tablespoons chopped nuts over the muffins before baking, if desired.

I'm delighted to have found a truly different muffin that tastes like summer, but sticks to your ribs! I made the recipe exactly as written and know I'll be making these often. One tip: I used butter-flavored spray to coat the muffin tins, and just that touch of buttery flavor really made the brown sugar/pineapple/walnut topping sing!
I haven't made some yet but they sound great. I am thinking of using rhubarb in the topping and in the muffins sometimes. we have a rhubarb patch here in Michigan.
I thought I could get away with using muffin papers instead of spraying my muffin pan. Big mistake! My muffins stuck in the worst way! So, I'm forced to scrape the insides of my muffin papers. So, follow the recipe! Other than that, the flavor was really good. But, because of the large number of ingredients, it wasn't easy! For that reason, I probably won't make them again. But, who can argue with the taste of brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans, etc. Definitely satisfies the taste for sweets.
These are delicious muffins. The batter was the right consistency. But, I used shredded carrots instead of grated carrots. So, they didn't break down into the batter well. I should've cut the b. sugar in half due to the sweetness of the raisins and pineapples.
