Hawaiian Chocolate Muffins

Hawaiian Chocolate Muffins

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (8 1/2 oz.) crushed pineapple - use the juice
  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches, or line with paper baking cups.

Beat oil, eggs and pineapple together in a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan while still warm to minimize sticking.

It's pineapple and macadamia nuts that give these muffins their Hawaiian flavor. You might also consider adding coconut. I've never done that but I can only image that it'd be a great addition.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank BethH for this recipe.

Not very good. Strong chocolate smell, but bland taste. Not really like a muffin. I believe there is something missing from this recipe???? Would never make again.

Surprisingly these don't end up very sweet or chocolaty. They smell good, but they end up being pretty bland... almost like a bran muffin without the bran flavor. Something that helps is the crushed pineapple-- though it's hard to evenly distribute the crushed pineapple without over mixing the batter, which I did with my first batch. But if you can get a spoon of the pineapple into each muffin, it helps quite a bit. Otherwise, totally average.
