Spiced Pineapple Muffins

Pineapple Upside-Down cake is one of our favorite desserts. We wanted to create a muffin that captured the same flavors as the traditional cake with fewer calories, less sugar and less fat. We bumped up the nutrition is this delicious little muffin by using high-protein ingredients that are sure to satisfy your cravings.

  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
