Spiced Pear Muffins
Sometimes I feel like a muffin in the morning but I know buying one from a cafe will later make me feel tired and lack energy from the refined sugars and white processed carbohydrate.
I often make up things based on what I have around, I tend to buy too many pears and then they become too "mooshy" for me to enjoy them so instead try and make something out of them,
This time it worked so i thought i'd share the recipe.
For anyone who saw the instagram story however they did get stuck to my muffin tray - I swear they always do no matter what I do, that sometimes happens with gluten free baking!
Pears are an excellent source of fibre, potassium and folate - so good for digestion and easing bloating/constipation!
So without a whole essay on how I got there and babbling, here is what I did
3 small ripe (very soft) pears cut into pieces
1/4 cup of sparkling water or ginger ale
1/4 cup honey
2 cups almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup arrowroot or corn flour
1/4 cup of nuts or seeds of choice crushed (i used sunflower and walnut
1 tsp of cinnamon
1tsp of ground ginger
1tsp baking powder
4 eggs (can use chia eggs if vegan - 1 tablespoon of chia and 1 tablespoon of water = 1 egg)
Dash of salt
I topped with walnuts and honey
Preheat oven to 180 degrees . Line a muffin tray with liners or spray with oil.(i did this but still didn't work
Dice Pear into smaller pieces. Place in medium bowl and then mix in your spices and ginger ale or sparkling water and honey
Add everything else and whisk in or blend it all together including eggs - mix till batter is blended - you can also leave a bit chunky if you like that style of muffin
if it looks dry you can add a dollop of your fav yoghurt in this step
Pour batter into oiled muffins cups, set aside.
If You have candied walnuts already prepared, go ahead and crush them in a small bag then sprinkle on top of each muffin. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon. If you don’t have candied walnuts, simply crush your walnuts in small bag, pour into a bowl, then mix the walnuts with a pinch of cinnamon and 1 tbsp or more of honey. Scoop these on top of the muffins before baking.
Cook for 25 minutes on 180 degrees - (of course all ovens vary)
