The Best Banana Pineapple Muffins



Our family loves bananas. I love to eat them in my cereal, as a quick on-the-go snack or in an ice cream sundae for a treat. Inevitably, I buy too many and they go bad so quickly. No worries, it’s the perfect time to use ripe bananas for these Banana Pineapple Muffins. Adapted from a Taste of Home Banana Pineapple Bread recipe, my recipe reduces the amount of vegetable oil and reduces the cooking time by making muffins instead. The result is a lower fat, more fruity flavor and a moist and delicious banana pineapple muffin.
