These Pineapple Oatmeal Muffins with White Chocolate Chips may just be my favorite muffin yet. Of course, I’ve always been a fan of the pineapple and white chocolate combo!
Pineapple Oatmeal Muffins
With my daughter’s obsession with chocolate chip muffins still raging, I have been trying to think out of the box. I had 1/2 a can of crushed pineapple leftover from an earlier recipe and white chocolate chips seemed a better fit than dark ones. The results were quite pleasing to me, though I must admit my nine year old daughter wasn’t so thrilled that the chips were white…lol
Grab some eco-friendly reusable baking cups (with free spatula), and don’t run out of liners like I did…lol
The pineapple oatmeal muffins themselves are quite moist and have some healthier ingredient choices in them like whole wheat, Greek yogurt and coconut oil. I’ll make these again when guests are coming, as my daughter is obviously a chocolate purist.
