Pineapples are a popular tropical fruit, not only well known for the geometric patterns on its body and gigantic crown of leaves on top, but also for its sweet and juicy taste and aroma. They are packed with many nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Together with oats, they make the juiciest muffins perfect for breakfast at home, a lunchbox snack or to take to a picnic.
