Hearty muffins made with whole wheat flour, almond flour and pear is perfect for on-the- go breakfast or anytime snack!
My freezer is always well stalked with tons of baked goods. It is so convenient on a lazy weekend morning or if you just wanna get some more sleep. Muffins are one of those perfect freezer foods, it freezes wells and does not take forever to thaw. When the muffins are homemade with healthy ingredients, you feel less guilty lazying around.
These muffins not only tastes amazing but also made with tons of good for you ingredients – whole wheat flour, almond flour, pear, cinnamon and more almonds on top.
Sophia would not eat any fruit other than apple and she couldn’t stop eating these. Grated pear kinda vanishes after baking, so even the picky eaters would enjoy them.
These muffins could not be any easier, whisk all dry ingredients together in one bowl. Stir beaten eggs, melted butter and grated pear in another bowl and then stir along with the dry. Transfer to pan, sprinkle sliced almonds and then bake.
