I thought these muffins were really good! I followed the advice in one of the reviews that suggested reducing the sugar since using sweetened coconut & adding a bit more pineapple juice....they were really moist and delicious! I'm thinking they could almost pass as a cupcake if you frosted them with cream cheese frosting!

I added a bit more of pineapple juice and a dash of flour. These muffins are so good. Coconut and pineapple are made to be together ;) Thanks Najwa :) Made for Holiday tag.
