One of my favorite cakes in the 80’s was pineapple upside down cake. Crushed pineapple was really popular to use in baking, and added lots of moisture to the recipe. Hummingbird cake, pineapple upside down cake, and dump cakes are three that come to mind. I loved pineapple upside down cake growing up, and I thought why not try a muffin with a few simple ingredients that can be made fast, grain free and low fodmap……….I had a craving! 🙂
So, if you like pineapple, here is a recipe that is simple, fast, and a pleasure to put together, that I think you will love! It makes an even dozen, and the muffins have a beautiful crumb. They start to brown on the tops as they are finishing off, for a truly delicious muffin that is not overly sweet.
Easy Pineapple One Bowl Muffins
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350º degrees. Line a twelve cup muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
1 14 oz. can of Native Forest Crushed Pineapple (or one without additives)
1/4 Cup Clear Honey (Clover Honey is Lower in FodMaps)
1 1/2 Tablespoons Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups Superfine Almond Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Okay, this is really, really simple, and I love it! Put the ingredients in a bowl in the order listed above, and using a hand held mixer, mix until completely blended. Scoop evenly into the muffin liners. I used a muffin scoop. Bake for 30 minutes in your preheated oven. They will be starting to brown on the top, and when gently pressed, the tops will spring back when done. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
