Tropical Whole Grain Muffins

It sure is cold outside! Most of the time during winter, I really enjoy soups, stews and hearty food that warms the belly. Every once in a while, though, I want my meal to whisk me away. Today, I brought a small taste of the tropics to my kitchen my using the 100 Days of Real Food Muffin Recipe and added pineapple juice, coconut, banana and a handful of pecans. Delicious!
