These sweet Pina Colada Muffins are a refreshing treat. A light, satisfying dessert that will transport you to the beach with every bite!
I have been dreaming about making these Pina Colada Muffins forever. There’s just nothing better than biting into sweet, citrusy bursts of pineapple flavor!
These muffins are very simple to make and are filled with delicious fresh fruit.

To make the muffins, all you need to do is mix the ingredients (the almond flour and coconut flour combined with sweet pineapple and hints of honey is magical) and bake until the edges are set. They should be slightly browned before you pull them out of the oven.
Did I mention these Pina Colada muffins come with a glazed frosting too? The glaze is made with coconut cream and maple syrup with more of that sweet pineapple laced into it! I recommend you make extra frosting to layer on other morning treats, like warm Paleo pancakes and waffles.
Tip: To save time, freeze the glaze while the muffins are baking. I warn you, though. You will want to eat all of them at once!
