Pear & granola muffins


This muffin recipe is great at any time of day, from breakfast through to afternoon tea. They are not too sweet so are perfect for anyone who is still working in their new year resolution to  be a bit healthier.

You'll need:
300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
125g muscovado sugar
250ml whole milk
2 medium eggs, beaten
100g butter, melted
2 small pears, peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
100g granola
To make:
Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4 and line a couple of muffin trays with paper cases.
Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar. Whisk the milk, eggs and butter together in a large jug, then pour into the dry ingredients and mix well, but not too much. Stir in the pears and half the granola.
Divide the batter between the muffin cases, and sprinkle the top of each one with the remaining granola.
Bake for 30 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the middle of the muffins comes out clean.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes, they are lovely warm or cold.

  1. They look delicious! Love the flavour of pear. I think I'd have to quarter the recipe as I have a terrible habit of eating things I bake way too quickly!!
