Mmmm, want your cake and be able to eat it too?  
Well then look no further - here is a recipe that is so darn tasty and shhh, don't tell your friends IT IS GOOD FOR YOU!! 
Coconut Pineapple Muffins Clean Eating style!!!! 



Coconut Pineapple Muffins

Ingredients...
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (def. use pastry flour and not regular) 
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 egg whites
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup safflower oil
1/4 cup light coconut milk
1 cup fresh pineapple - chopped

Directions...
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Line your muffin tins with muffin papers and lightly spray with cooking spray
3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and coconut.  Whisk together, then add pineapple.  Stir.  (this will coat the pineapple in flour completely)
4. In a second, medium bowl, combine the egg whites, honey, oil, and coconut milk.  
5. Now combine the contents of both bowls and stir well.
6. Place the muffin tins in the oven and also include on a the lower rack a oven proof save dish filled with water.  (the water will create a bit of steam which will keep your muffins moist).  
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Test with a toothpick or cake stick and make sure it comes out clean.  (there may be a  slight bit of moistness left in the middle due to pineapple, but not a lot).
8.  Allow to cool and serve.  

Makes 12 muffins
