Pineapple Cornbread Muffins

I love making these muffins...because they turn out good every single time. They are yummy to eat on their own, or enjoy them along side a big bowl of  hearty chili or steamy soup.

Pineapple Cornbread Muffins
1.5 cup cornmeal
1.5 cup soft white wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sucanat or 1/2 cup pure cane sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup vanilla almond or rice milk
20 oz. can of crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


Preheat oven 400 degrees.  Stir together first 5 (dry) ingredients in a large bowl.  In a different bowl, stir together the wet ingredients and then add them to the dry ingredients.  Mix together just until everything is moist.  Spoon into lightly oiled muffin tins until they're full.  Bake for 18 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  After removing muffins from oven wait about 5 minutes, then take muffins out of pan and let cool on rack.  Enjoy 'em!

These sound delicious, I'll have to try them this week.
One question - actually, two questions:
When your coconut oil has solidified, do you have to melt it before you use it?
And for the sugar, I have the sugar in the raw (turbinado?) stuff - will that work?

Tammie said...

Rorie: I usually to melt it before I use it especially if I am going to be baking it anyway. It seems easier to work with melted or at least softened. And yes I bet you could use turbinado and have it turn out good.

How about using hard white wheat? I don't have soft white.

Tammie said...

FiestyGirl: I would go ahead and try it! It may be a little more heavy but still good!

Vanessa said...

Tammie I have a question? I am making the Four Thieves vinegar and I don't have any Hyssop, is there a substitute for it or can I leave it out? What are your suggestions?



Vanessa said...

Also, how long does the vinegar last after it has sat for six weeks?

Tammie said...

Vanessa: You could leave out the Hyssop but I wouldn't I'm not sure that there is an herb that would work instead. Hyssop is known for helping with coughs and congestion.

After you strain the herbs off the vinegar after six weeks the four thieves vinegar should keep for a long time in a cool, dark place. I would put it in a amber glass jar with a tight fitting lid. It won't go bad and I think it should have pretty good medicinal properties for at least a couple years maybe more. If slime starts growing in it don't worry that's just the mother from the raw vinegar it won't hurt you in fact it is good for you!

When using coconut oil, do you have to heat it before using it. I just bought some and I have never used it before. It's solid right?

Tammie said...

homebirthmomma: Coconut oil melts at about 76 degrees so yes most of the time it is solid. I usually just put it on low heat on the stove in a small pan and melt it before I use it. Some people put it in a container and put the container in hot water to melt the oil. Just do what works for you. Yes most of the time I do melt it before I use it.
