These Pineapple Crunch Muffin from Little Daisy's World were an odd little muffin.
They were super moist due to the pineapple, but the nuts gave them a bit of a crunch. The crunch paired with the moist base was a weird sensation. You don't really expect to have to chew something that moist.
Maybe it was for this reason that Mrblocko didn't like them. Maybe they weren't sweet enough, or they were just too moist. Or maybe he didn't like the texture of the bits of fruit. I have no idea cause he wouldn't tell me why he didn't like them.
That was ok, because I liked them just fine. I did have to put butter on them, which is not something I would normally do with a muffin. The muffins were a nice change from the usual toast for breakfast. Besides, I always consider it a bonus to eat fruit, no matter how small the portion.
