The story of these muffins started with some bio pears that I bought last weekend and that were already very soft (but still good) by this morning. I needed to use them for something, since they had a nice scent and I could guess they were also very sweet.
I also had a new silicon mold, with a snowman, so I decided to make some very simple and fast muffins, that looked and smelled like winter.
- 2 very ripe pears (you can use bananas as well - one big banana or 2 small ones);
- 2 eggs;
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil;
- 1/2 cup milk;
- 2 cups white flour;
- 1 tsp baking powder;
- 1 tsp cinnamon;
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla;
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg;
+ optional: one apple, diced or chopped walnuts.
Mix the pears, eggs, coconut oil and milk in a food processor or in a bowl, using a hand mixer. Separately, mix the flour with the spices and baking powder and then add it to the blender. Mix until you get a smooth batter and pour it in a bowl. Add the diced apple or the walnuts and stir.
Split the batter between the muffin molds and bake in the preheated oven, at 180 degrees Celsius,for about 35-40 de minute, until they pass the toothpick test.
