Pear and Almond Muffins

Through this website by Freshlife, I've made a great honey almond slice. This is another great recipe found in this website.

With 25g of mashed pears in each muffin, these semi-wholemeal muffins are soft and moist inside. I think that they are healthy snacks too and great to be packed into our lunch boxes.



Here's the recipe from

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup extra light olive oil
3/4 cup caster sugar
300g canned pears, mashed
1 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1 cup self raising flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Extra slivered almonds and brown sugar for topping


Preheat oven to 180°C and grease 12-hole muffin pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, oil and sugar. Stir in pear.

Add flours, cinnamon and slivered almonds and mix until just combined.

Divide mixture between muffin pan and sprinkle tops with extra slivered Almonds and brown sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from pan. Place on wire rack. Serve warm.

Happy Baking

    i noticed that it uses canned pear...i wonder if i can get away using fresh pear...maybe need to poach it first to soften? i have so many pears to use up!
