I had some ripe pears in the fruit basket, more and more often my son is wanting to eat his food using his own hands, and I had a craving (non-pregnancy related!) for a sweet desert that the adults in the house could drizzle with vanilla icecream. The muffins were quite moist and my son loved them. I think he feels like a big boy eating them on his own. The addition of honey is up to you and so, I have suggested adding it at the end of the recipe if you so wish.
These are simple and delicious. I made them for my daughter’s after school play date and they only took 20 min to make and were cooked in 10. Quick and easy, perfect for a busy mum. There are also some hints on how to make them with natural colouring.
This recipe came to mind for no greater reason that I had some very ripe pears that I wanted to use. At the same time, my little boy was a little ‘blocked up’ and I wanted to make something with prunes. Pear and prune – sounded like a good idea to me! I have used a recipe for savoury slices and modified it to work for a sweet slice. My little boy loved the pear and prune slices and I will be making some more.
These cookies are sugar free, dairy free, egg free, healthy… and delicious. If your little one is under 12 months, then replace the honey with a teaspoon of vanilla extract
