Similar to the sweet bread muffins found in the US, the piñon muffin is low in sugar by standard.
Usually served with coffee or tee. Not necessarily a dessert but has enough "pleasant" taste for your enjoyment. See it as a different kind of churro.
You could easily get used to its low sugar content to appreciate it as a breakfast food. Its smooth texture combined with pine nuts and orange aromas will certainly do the trick.
