Malibu Pineapple Muffins

This past Saturday was my first & most likely last trip to Six Flags! Heres what really happened:
Total time spent: ~ 10 hours
We rode : total 9 rides
We spent : barely 1 minute on each ride
Yes, and the rest 9 hours 50 minutes was spent wasted in the line with 50 million people or I learned my lesson- not-to-go..

That energy-draining experience ruined my bbq plan on Sunday-which I had been looking forward to mainly for grilled pineapples and since I don’t have backyard or grill machine, I was bummed to miss this opportunity…So the pineapple, which could have been awesomely grilled was chilling on my counter top and I had too many (supposedly) great recipe ideas none of which worked because my brother & I finished 3/4th of the pineapple (try pineapples with a dash of salt).

It was again that time of the week- time to replenish bread supply so heres what happened to the remaining pineapples.

½ cup oil
½ cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons rum
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tablespoon flax seed + 6 tablespoon water
2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup pineapple, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2.  In a large bowl, beat together the oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and rum. 
  3. Combine the mashed bananas and flax seed mixture in a separate bowl and add to the sugar mixture. Beat until thoroughly combined. 
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon. Stir it into the banana mixture. Add the pineapple to the mixture.
  5. Spoon the batter into the greased muffin tin. 
  6. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean
  7. Remove from the oven, and let cool in the tins before removing to cool completely.
