Daniel Fast Sweet Potato Pineapple Muffins (DF, GF)

I thought these were SOOOO good.  I LOVED the sweetness from the pineapple and the sweet potato.  The blend of spices also gave the muffins a nice flavor.

 One of my co-workers liked this muffin recipe better because she liked having more pineapple and the raisins in the muffin.  I personally liked this muffin better because I liked it better with less pineapple !!!!

This is a thick batter.

As with all Daniel Fast muffins, since you can not use leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda),  they do not rise like "regular" muffins - resulting in a denser muffin.

1 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
1 cup Oat Flour   (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup Perrier water (no sugar)
8 large dates, chopped
2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce 
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)


Blend the applesauce, dates and water in a blender or food processor until well blended.

Mix the pineapple, sweet potatovanilla extract and bananas in one bowl.  Add the blended dates (with the applesauce and water) and stir until well combined.

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin Pan,Casabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.
