  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine

  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cut up


Grease 18 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pecans, and oats. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

In a separate bowl, whisk together sour milk or buttermilk, melted butter or margarine, and egg. Pour into well in flour mixture; stir to blend just until dry ingredients are moistened, but do not overmix. Gently fold in drained pineapple and coconut.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full.

For topping, mix together brown sugar, flour, coconut, and oats. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs have formed. Sprinkle coarse crumb topping over pineapple muffin batter.

Bake muffins at 400° for about 20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and firm. Transfer pans to rack to cool for about 5 minutes. Gently turn pineapple muffins out onto rack to cool completely.

These muffins are so rich and sweet they do not need any butter or spread. I have found them as good cold as warm. They are very good for a quick breakfast, a teatime, snacktime or dessert.. Yes I will be making these again but will not be serving them for the bread in a meal. I left out the pecans because of allergies and it worked just fine.
