Pina Colada Muffins

Big A is refusing her naps again so we told her as long as there are no meltdowns, she is welcome to skip it. So far this weekend, she's handled herself pretty well, although she did snooze a bit in the car on the way to Ikea yesterday. Today she insisted we bake together while Little A was taking her nap solo, so I came up with this recipe and it turned out soooo good.

4 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs or 4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar or Splenda
19 oz can crushed pineapple, with juice
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tbls coconut extract or 2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup finely shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 cup light coconut milk
2.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 cups natural bran
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

Whisk together wet ingredients and coconut in medium bowl. Stir together dry ingredients in large bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix just until combined. Spoon into greased muffin tins (makes about 12 large or 18 medium muffins)and bake at 375 for about 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and remove from baking pan.
