Reasons Why These Candied Fruit Muffins Are Deliciously Different

First of all, this recipe isn’t your typical pineapple muffins recipe. There is a delicious difference using candied fruits instead using crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks and relying on spices for maximizing its flavor potential.

Secondly, using candied pineapple and candied ginger give the moist texture of these muffins a more satisfying chew.

In addition, this ideal breakfast or snack muffins are also healthy muffins since canola oil is used. Yet, they also are salt-free muffins for those watching their sodium levels. Furthermore, these muffins with candied ginger use just one-fourth cup of sugar for the batter besides the candied fruits for sweetness.

Another reason to make these candied pineapple muffins is how simple they are to bake. You’re just assembling the ingredients and mixing by hand instead of pulling out your electric mixer. The amount of mixing is also minimal because you just want to moisten the ingredients for the best pineapple ginger muffins.

The fifth reason you should try these special fruit muffins is because they are so good with how that ginger flavor is intensified.

Tips for the Ultimate Pineapple Muffins

It is best to preheat the oven first, then line your muffin tins before assembling the ingredients. Bake these muffins as soon as the dry ingredients are briefly mixed with the wet just to moisten the ingredients because once the liquid comes in contact with the dry, the leavening agent in form of baking powder, starts growing.

You can add more of those candied fruits if you desire extra fruity goodness. However, I like using the equal amounts of each for this easy muffin recipe because it is a great balance from the zesty ginger flavor I experienced.
