Pina Colada Muffins
These breakfast muffins have plenty of flavor and fewer calories than regular muffins, thanks to the substitution of sucralose, commonly available as Splenda, for sugar. Pineapple adds extra sweetness and keeps the muffins moist.
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sucralose, such as Splenda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 eggs
3/4 cup skim milk
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. rum extract
1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple packed in juice, drained
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, divided
