Aloha Muffins

We recently going to Hawaii for the first time, I fell in love with it! It is amazing! The scenery – wow. Mountains, rivers, waterfalls, the coast line, snorkeling, the warm wind. All of it was just lovely. Since coming back home I wanted to try and  bring some of the flavors home.

They are sweet but not too sweet and the pineapple and juice really adds moisture and flavor. I feel like they bring back a little bit of the flavor of Hawaii.
