Pear and Walnut Muffins Recipe


12 muffins

Paula says: “These muffins are so delicious and ideal for little hands to pick up. They could be part of a lunch box or as a snack when you are out and about.”



1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Measure the flour, oats, walnuts, baking powder and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

2. Add the chopped pears to the flour mixture and fold in, then add the dairy alternative drink, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Mix until just combined.

3. Spoon the mixture into a greased muffin tray and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Paula adds: “You could use other fruit such as apples or blueberries in this recipe if you don’t have pears. The walnuts are a fantastic source of the essential omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).”
