Recipe: Pear Pecan Muffins

pear pecan muffins

We have had a real actual honest to goodness week off! It has been amazing. Sexy Husband closed the Studio. I’ve barely cooked or done a thing. We’ve played in the snow, gone out for coffee, and celebrated 2 new babies to join our circle of friends(the Village). Honestly, it’s been amazing.

Today, however, it felt like a muffin day. So Picky Princess and I whipped up this little recipe. The muffins turned out perfectly. The pecans and pears tasted nutty and wintery. If it’s a muffin day for you…try them out!

Pear Pecan Muffins

Makes 12 large muffins plus 6 mini muffins

1.5 cups spelt flour

1/2 cup oats

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup almond oil(I’m sure you could substitute with olive oil. My mom gave me this almond oil for Christmas and it smells amazing!)

1 egg

1 pear coarsely shredded

1/2 cup chopped pecans

brown sugar for sprinkling.

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients together with a whisk. Set aside. Mix wet ingredients together, including pear. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until not quite combined. Add pecans and stir just a few turns more. Scoop into paper or silicone muffin cups. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for about 20 minutes (about 15 for mini muffins). Serve warm!
