Vegan Pineapple Muffins

pineapple-muffinsWho doesn’t love Pineapple Muffins?! Though a bit under-rated than Chocolate, or Blueberry Muffins, these Vegan pineapple muffins are hard to avoid! The idea behind this recipe came from an urge to indulge in a Pina-Colada, and I was curious to see how it would taste as a muffin! Baked vegan, yet complete with the flavor of pineapples & fresh sweet coconut, these are as soft and moist as any other muffin recipe. They do sink a bit after removing from the oven, due to lack of eggs, but hey, you sure won’t mind devouring these Pineapple Muffins as soon as they are served to you!

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegan sugar (demerera)
1 cup drained crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
1 1/2 tbsp vinegar

Note: This is a healthier version; feel free to replace wheat flour with all-purpose flour for traditional muffins.

Preheat the oven to 400 deg F and spray a 12-muffin pan with non-stick spray.

Sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, mix the pineapples with the sugar, soymilk, and vinegar.

Pour the mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add in the shredded coconut, and pour into prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5-8 mins in the wire rack.

Serve these delicious Pineapple Muffins with tea or coffee. These are so soft and moist, no one will believe they are Vegan!


  1. Wow….these muffins are awesome! I substituted a 1/3 cup of agave nectar for the sugar, and since I didn't have vanilla soy milk I substituted Trader Joes Whole Grain milk with 1tsp of vanilla. A definite make again recipe! I bet it would be great with apple or banana puree as well!

  2. thanx a lot for the info Mansi!! 🙂
