Pineapple Ginger Muffins

Mmmmm…muffins.

Yum.

I’m eating one of these delicious Pineapple Ginger Muffins as I type. I should really stop doing that, by the way. Not stopping eating the muffins, obviously, but eating while I’m working. Not good when you get crumbs in the old keyboard, if you know what I mean.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who uses their desk as both workstation and dining table. Funnily enough, our desk is our dining table. We love having more space for the computer and all its accoutrements but it does mean we don’t have a proper table. My Mom would not approve. Sitting down to meals, at the dinner table, was tradition. Since we decided to repurpose the table, Joe and I each have a fold out tray (nice wooden ones, mind you) that we eat off of and it works well for us.

Not traditional, but we are not the traditional type. No kids for us, and we’ve shunned marriage. We’ve opted to skip the mortgage route and live with no ties. I’ve always liked feeling that if I needed to just pick up and go, I could. I’m not much for collecting material things and I don’t like anchors. Probably some deep seeded childhood issues, but whatevs.

It’s me.

It’s us.

What I do enjoy is the pineapple. I looooove me some pineapple.

When I made the Frozen Pineapple Greek Yogurt a few weeks back, it got me to thinking about other pineapple based recipes. Normally, I just slice a fresh pineapple into chunks and go to town, slurping it up fresh, but I thought a good muffin recipe might be fun.

Muffins are good because they double as both breakfast and a snack. Perfect. Two birds with one stone. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used spelt flour as the base for these muffins as well as some Greek yogurt. You could totally use sour cream if you feel like being decadent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Maple syrup is the sweetener of choice, along with pineapple, of course. A hint of ginger pulls it all together.

Enjoy, my friends!

  1. We just bought a house and went decidedly for the ties! LOL Funny thing is I feel more free. But I guess that just means it was the right step at the right time in our lives. I wouldn’t have felt that way a year ago.

    Speaking of which, I hope to do more home making in our new casa. Especially since I foresee more entertaining. All your recipes are going to come in handy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Congratulations!! How exciting. It’s all about timing, isn’t it? I can totally see you as hostess. Maybe a Downton Abbey tea party? ๐Ÿ˜‰
