Make these fresh and warm for a weekend breakfast, or try them with a ham dinner, or even with chicken or turkey. Apparently not too many folks have thought about putting pineapple in a muffin. I know I hadn't until I tasted these at my parents' house. I don't know where my Dad got this recipe, but I do know he made some changes to it, so this is his version. He made these moist and not-too-sweet muffins often. I can still picture him dumping them out on the counter right after taking them out of the oven. It was funny, he just took the pan out with potholders and practically threw them on the counter! When you use 2 1/2-inch muffin tins, this recipe will make 18 muffins with 106 calories and 3 grams fat each. If you want to use a different size muffin pan, you will have to adjust the baking time accordingly: less time for smaller muffins (maybe start checking them after 15 minutes?) and more time for larger muffins. And of course, as ovens vary, some of you may find that the temperature of the oven will also need to be adjusted, so that the outside of the muffin does not get overbrown before the inside gets done. Now, listen: I tried using paper muffin cups with this recipe, even though Dad told me it wouldn't work, but I hate washing the muffin pans, so........ok, he was right (again) Too much of the muffin sticks to the paper, I think because these are so low fat. Dad was diabetic and a heart patient, so they are also low in sugar, and sodium. Just remember, no paper liners in the muffin tins, okay?
