These nutrient rich muffins are made with pineapple, coconut, banana, and whole oats. *Rum not included, but not excluded either, so go ahead, wash these down with an ice cold glass of rum! Land-ho! Argh!

They are oil free, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, egg free. 

I make these for my one year old as a healthy snack, but my hubby kept eating them. Who am I kidding, I ate three in a row! Our daughter loves them and keeps signing “more, eat” whenever I make them for her.
