Pineapple Coconut Muffins

Pineapple Coconut Muffins ... If you love coconut and pineapple, try these muffins! A perfect tropical flavor explosion! They are crisp on the top and moist inside. I've made a few adjustments to the original recipe. Used pineapple syrup ( from the pineapple tin ) along with milk; melted butter in place of oil ... They were a big hit :)
