Paleo Pineapple Coconut Muffins

So after the pina colada pancakes were all gone, I began craving them. Those things are so good. I decided I needed to make a more portable version of the pancakes, so here is a muffin version. My kids loved them so much that they called them "dessert". I personally have already eaten three.

Paleo Pineapple Coconut Muffins
(makes 24 muffins)

6 eggs
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp oil (almond or coconut are best)
1 tbsp vanilla
15 oz can crushed pineapple (I used delmonte), drained of most of the juice
1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened (I used finely shredded)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups almond flour

Preheat oven to 350 and line muffin pan with paper liners. Mix eggs in large bowl until well beat. Add maple syrup, oil, vanilla and pineapple. Mix to combine. Add coconut, salt, baking soda and almond flour. Stir until well combined. Scoop into lined muffin tins, filling each cup about 3/4s of the way. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from pan to cool. Serve and enjoy!


  1. Yummmy! How'd I miss this one??
    making this weekend :)

  2. Do you think I could use coconut flour in the place of almond?

  3. If you do, just use a lot less. Like 1/2-2/3 cups coconut flour.
