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.

Notes-

-I used a large Bartlett pear from Costco. If you have only medium sized pears, them use

1 1/2.

– Grate pear just before using them, so that it will have its lovely color and not turn brown.

  2. Maria, Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I closed this round of Guest Posts as I initially thought to do one post per week, and at present have one for every day of the week up and till the mid of December, and running at over a 100 guest posts.
    Watch my blog, as in Mid November, I will release a new format and at present have not finalized it as yet, but thinking of doing a theme type of post. I will share the information on the blog as soon as I have done all the write up and work around this concept.
