Sweet, light and moist, these flavour packed Tropical Muffins are seriously good and just gorgeously fragranced. These pineapple passionfruit flavoured muffins freeze really well. It’s a delicious easy one bowl recipe that’s perfect for snacks or lunchboxes.


  • 1 small (100g) overripe banana, mashed until smooth
  • 1/2 cup pineapple, diced into small rough chunks
  • 1/3 cup passionfruit pulp
  • 1/2 large orange zest and juice
  • 1/2 cup thick greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • shredded coconut to top (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 175c and grease a muffin tin thoroughly.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the wet ingredients, sugar, cinnamon and fruit until smooth.
  • Add in the flour and desiccated coconut into the whisked ingredients and mix until just combined. The mixture will be wet and loose.
  • Divide the mixture evenly into the greased muffin tin, sprinkle with shredded coconut (optionally) and bake for around 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
  • Stand for 5 minutes then remove from the tin and place on a wire wrack.


I recommend that you do not use muffin tin liners for this recipe. The mixture will stick to the liners. Use a non stick muffin tray and grease it thoroughly.
