Helpful Tips and FAQs

Using an Alternative Flour

I recommend King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour, but if you prefer a different diabetic-friendly baking flour, you can substitute it. You may not get a similar fluffy muffin as some flour tends to be denser and doesn’t rise as well. As always, the nutritional information will change with alternative flour.

Can I skip sifting the flour?

You can easily skip sifting the all-purpose flour. I don’t recommend skipping sifting the King Arthur JKeto wheat Flour or the Coconut Flour. Both of these types of flour tend to be dense and sifting helps to break up any lumps and make the flour lighter.

Replacing the All-Purpose flour

if you would like to substitute the all-purpose flour, you can either choose to add more King Arthur keto wheat flour or more coconut flour. Adding a little bit of all-purpose flour adds a little bit of fluffiness to the finished muffin however, it is not required.

Using Alternative Sweetener

I use Splenda granulated whenever possible as it does not negatively impact my blood sugar. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols cause my blood sugar to rise. If this is not a concern for you or you have a preferred sweetener, by all means, make substitutions that suit your preferences and dietary needs. Keep in mind that substituting the sweetener may change the overall nutritional information.

Alternatives to Coconut Cream

A viable alternative to the coconut cream is a plain unsweetened yogurt or sour cream. The nutritional information will be altered but the muffins will still taste great and be diabetic-friendly.

How Long do I need to drain the crushed pineapple?

Put the pineapple into a small sieve over a cup or bowl and allow it to drain before you start the recipe. Stir it around to remove excess juice. It doesn’t need to be dried completely, we just need to remove the bulk of the juice.

When you are ready to add the pineapple, it will be drained well enough to add to the recipe.

Is there an alternative to Stur?

The Stur brand Pina Colada Drink Flavouring is best suited to this recipe. It adds to the flavour of the batter and then is the perfect addition to the glaze. Using Stur in the glaze provided that extra boost of pineapple coconut flavour to the muffins. If you choose to omit the Stur you can replace the liquid with water, unsweetened pineapple juice or coconut milk.

Storing and Freezing Instructions

Store your baked Sugar Free Pina Colada Muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for upt to 65 days.

For Freezing – Do not add glaze and tidbits to the top before freezing. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months. After thawing, continue by adding glaze, tidbits and the coconut, if desired.
