These hearty muffins are packed with goodies like pineapple, coconut, raisins and pecans. We enjoy them with coffee on Christmas morning. In fact, my family likes them so much that I now also make them for Thanksgiving breakfast.

"I don't think I've ever had a more requested recipe than this one. Even someone who swore she wouldn't like them because they had so much "stuff" in them now makes them constantly. Absolutely delicious."

"Oh my goodness. I am also in Elmira, Michigan and I must say these muffins are to die for. I love this recipe and enjoyed sharing them with friends and family with coffee. Crazy good. Thank you Neighbor for sharing. I used to share my recipes, however now that I am older. I rather have people come visit because I enjoy passing the plate. SO worth the smiles. Thank you!!!"

"I made these for my family this morning but accidentally left out the vegetable oil. They came out tasting great anyway and they had less fat and calories. I will definitely be making these again."
