Pear and banana muffins

6 Nov

You will probably find even more muffin recipes hanging out here.  I find them rather convenient for an on the run breakfast to eat on the train when I head down to university.  It is a 45 minute ride so I have some time to fill and, as some of my new classmates have been made aware, eating (breakfast in particular) is one of my favourite things to do.  As breakfast you obviously want something healthy and these almost have one of your five a day (okay if you made 3 giant muffins instead of 9 well sized ones).

Also good to have one with a cup of tea later in the day.


  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flakes
  • 1/3 cup milled flax seed
  • 1/3 cup fruit sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup oat milk
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 grated pears


  1. combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. add grated pears and remaining wet ingredients
  3. stir well
  4. spoon into greased muffin tray
  5. bake at 180ºC for 20-25 minutes (until a skewer comes out clean).
  6. cool and store or eat straight away

Made 9
