Moist and yummy

Muffins were chunky and substantial. I added shredded carrots; I should have put it in the food processor to break it down. Should have cut the sugar in half due to the sweetness of the pineapples.

easy to make, fruits, veggie, and nuts equals fiber
Really Good

I really enjoyed these muffins. They didn't blow my socks off with their awesomeness, but they're good. I've added them to my rotation of grab-and-go breakfasts because they really do fill me up and keep me going. That's what I like best about them

moist, tasty, healthy, hearty easy to modify, bake beautifully
Very tasty!

My co-works raved about these muffins. Quite delicious!
