This is it… These Vegan Coconut Pineapple Muffins are seriously the. best. muffins. I have ever had – and no, I’m not exaggerating. It’s like having a party in your mouth.
If you thought a muffin was supposed to be dense and dry, these will change your mind. They are soft, moist and flavorful, with a perfect amount of coconut and pineapple.
If you like anything pina colada flavored, you have to try these. (And if you don’t… You still need to try them 😉 ) Plus, they have whole wheat flour and wheat germ for added nutrients and fiber!
There really aren’t any secrets to these… It’s as easy as mixing everything together and baking it. The only secret will be figuring out how to keep them from disappearing as soon as you make them (when you figure that one out, let me know). My family loves these, and eats them almost as quick as I can bake them!
These muffins are the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch, and are so good you could even eat them as a dessert. Take a batch to your next summer picnic or cookout, and let me know what you think!
- 1 large banana, mashed (about ½ cup)
- ½ cup cane sugar
- ½ cup soy milk
- ⅓ cup oil (neutral flavored)
- ¾ cup crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (plus more for topping)
- ¼ cup wheat germ
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 375º. Line a standard size muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix mashed banana and sugar until fully combined.
- Next, add soy milk, oil, crushed pineapple, and vanilla extract and whisk well.
- Add remaining dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir just until there are no lumps. Be careful not to overmix!
- Carefully fill each muffin tin about ¾ of the way full with batter. Sprinkle extra shredded coconut on top of batter.
- Bake muffins for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Hi Ariel! I just kind if stumbled across this … your blog. How fun! How do you have time to do this? Anyway, I am going to make your pineapple muffins this weekend. They look really good! Love to you! Teresa Johnson (Matt’s mom)
Teresa!! I’m so glad you found the blog! 😀 I do it in my spare time (which isn’t much lol), but I have fun! Hope you loved the muffins! They are our favorite 🙂 Love back to you! <3
I made these yesterday after eyeing your instagram post for a week; they were delicious! But I was lazy with my measurements and they came out rather flat and gummy. So I tried again today, and followed directions carefully — and they are even more delicious, plus they are actually a proper muffin texture now 🙂 They’re definitely one of the best muffins I’ve had, and certainly the most unique! Note: I baked them in a silicone muffin pan and they took about 30 minutes to be fully baked.
Thanks for the comment, Julie! I’m glad they worked out better the second time. 😉 😀 And I’ll take note of the baking time for the silicone pan! Good to know!
