Moist and Sweet Carrot Pineapple Muffins

Updated on July 16, 2014

Anytime that I can prepare a dish that's sweet and delicious but also includes vegetables, I am all for it.

I like serving these muffins to guests since they are moist, tender and always get a lot of compliments. They are usually surprised to find out they have carrots in them but the carrots really do add a nice sweetness.

Serve these Carrot Pineapple Muffins for any meal, whether it's  breakfast, brunch, dinner or snack. I enjoy them anytime.

      This looks a very yummy recipe as I love muffins I will make some, but I may leave out the walnuts not keen on them, it shouldn't make that much difference to the final taste.

      I love carrot muffins with pineapple and walnuts. When I lived in Manhattan I used to eat them all the time. Those had raisins as well and were called Morning Glory muffins. Happy memories! Thanks for the great recipe.

      The ingredients remind me of carrot cake. They sound very tasty.
