Pineapple Coconut Banana Nut MuffinsDo I have a “muffin rule?” I guess I do. A “muffin” needn’t be a “cupcake” in my world. Plainly, a “muffin” is somewhat nutritive, something I can eat for breakfast. Got it?

The “Pineapple Coconut Banana Nut Muffin,” from Bake or Break, was that kind of muffin. The list of ingredients told me so: bananas, pineapple, pecans, coconut. I reduced the amounts here, in order to make only 12 muffins. I chopped my pecans in my food processor, then did the same to crush my canned pineapple chunks. No stand mixer necessary -- I mixed the batter by hand.

After baking for 15:30 minutes, I had a nice moist muffin. Taste banana, pecan, and coconut. Enjoy.
