1 cup pear, cubed

1/3 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

1 tablespoon coconut sugar

2 tablespoons raw pepitas


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 6-cavity muffin tin with a dab of coconut oil

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oat flour and oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, banana, and non-dairy milk

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry

  5. Fold in chopped pears

  6. Equally portion batter into the 6 muffin cavities

  8. Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes, until the end of a knife comes out clean

Remember

  • Banana acts as the oil and the sweetener in this recipe. It doesn't give much of a banana flavour!

  • Don't be afraid to over-fill the muffin cavities. They don't expand like crazy like typical cakey muffins do
