Delicious Pineapple Coconut Muffins that are light and fluffy, gluten free, sugar free, grain free
Here's a new Low Carb Pina Colada Muffin to say Thanks to all of my FB fans! These yummy, almost guilt free, gluten free, sugar free and grain free Pineapple Coconut Muffins are scrumptious!  

I used Erythritol and Stevia for the sweeteners today. I don't use Erythritol often, it's expensive, but it worked well in these muffins. Have you used Erythritol it in your baking?  I would love to hear your thoughts.

I decided to stop using Splenda. It's just not worth the health risks. It's a shame, because it bakes up so well and it's affordable. Here's some info on the risks   Read about Splenda here

I do highly recommend liquid Stevia.  It's a little tricky figuring out how much to use when substituting in a recipe.  This is a simple formula that I use.  5 drops liquid stevia = 1 tablespoon honey.

Here's some more great Mexican recipes you might enjoy!

Makes 18 muffins

Ingredients:

In a large bowl, sift and combine the dry ingredients:
In a small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons liquid stevia
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice or use all pineapple juice
Add at the end:
  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained, squeezed and diced
Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Line pans with paper liners that have been greased with olive or coconut oil. I put a drop in a spread with my fingers. Or use your favorite spray.
  1. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well, incorporating all of the dry. Add the pineapple and stir until you have a thick batter.
  2. Using a large spoon or cookie scoop, fill muffins liners 3/4 full.
  3. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.

    1. Christine, what sweeteners do you like? I would try 1/3-1/2 cup of local honey and decrease the liquids accordingly. Hope they turn out great!
