  1. I love all things tropical, so am glad I came across this post. The use of the coconut flour is unique and nothing beats a banana/pineapple combo. You also made a great choice in doing the nuts on top instead of a thick frosting. Yum! Have a great day.

  2. I made your muffins today for breakfast and we loved them! Both my son and my husband really enjoyed it and my son (who is 9) even commented on the fluffy texture :-) He likes pineapples and bananas and at his first bite he already declared these to be great!
    Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

  3. Thanks Tina!

    Ana...That's great that you made the muffins! I sometimes wonder if people actually make anything I post :P
    What is not to love about pineapple and banana!
