Whole Wheat Pineapple Muffins (and other healthy breakfast ideas)

Adapted from the More-With-Less cookbook:
(the only changes I made were to make these truly whole wheat and used less sugar)

Whole Wheat Pineapple Muffins

2 cups whole wheat flour (can use WW pastry flour in these for a lighter taste)
3 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 cup sugar, apple juice, honey, or other sweet substitute
1/4 cup margarine (I used part applesauce for this)
1 egg
1 cup crushed pineapple, undrained

Mix dry ingredients together. Cream sweetener and fats (margarine/butter/applesauce) together. Add egg and stir well. Stir in crushed pineapple. Fill muffin tins 3/4 of the way. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Best if served hot.

Some other healthy breakfast ideas to get out of the rut:

Granola-y Peanut Butter Trail Mix (serve over yogurt)

Fruit and Veggie Muffins

Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

Blender Banana Oatmeal Waffles (vegan)

I've never had pinapple muffins before. I'll bet they're good. I also like the sound of the oatmeal banana waffles. Yum!
