Pear and Pecan Muffins

Yesterday we received  our first veg box delivery from Phantassie.  Nestled among such gems as romenseco and jerusalem artichokes were a pair of ripe pears ready to stave off my despair at America’s new trumped up democracy.  Is there a better way of hiding despair than under a pear muffin?


2 large ripe bananas
1 large pear (comice)
1/4 cup of soy milk
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1.5 cups wholewheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup golden caster sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chopped pear


Preheat oven to 180 deg C.

Combine bananas, large pear, milk, peanut butter, flaxseed and vanilla extract in a food processor.

In a separate bowl, sieve flour and baking powder and add sugar.  Mix to combine. Mix in the wet ingredients until just incorporated.  Fold in pear and pecans.

Fill muffin cases and bake for 15-18 mins. (Tops should lightly brown and a skewer should come out clean).

Place on a cooling rack.

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea whilst pondering the breakdown of society. (Other pondering options available at your discretion).
