photo(8)Every once in a while, it’s fun to go back through old cookbooks because you never know what forgotten treasure you might find.  That’s what happened with these Pineapple Sunshine Muffins.  This original recipe was hiding in an old cookbook.  It was originally given to us by an old family friend and neighbor-Mina.  She has left us, but her precise instructions and handwritten notes at the bottom of the recipe bring back fond memories of recipe exchanges and friendship.  Even though this was  many years ago (hence the type written recipe) she was always concerned with making delicious recipes more healthy. A woman ahead of her time. 🙂

These muffins are light and very flavorful and good for you too.  Mina would want us to share the recipe, so happy baking!      IMG_3822
