Pear, macadamia and quinoa muffins are something a little different and both yummy and healthy. Lovely for the whole family you can eat them as they are or warm with some yoghurt and stewed fruit. If you don’t have quinoa flour you can substitute it for wholemeal (or white) flour.
With allergies becoming more common it’s sometimes difficult to come up with things for lunchboxes,or you could just simply make this because you have no eggs either way these are yummy. I love this recipe because it is quick and easily done in 5 mins, all you have to do is wait for them to cook.
When my bananas become inedible (happens pretty quickly in Perth after a hot day) I pop them in the freezer. They are perfect for muffins and cakes and make them yummy and moist.I whipped these up in the thermomix. They took 10 seconds and they are deliciously light and fluffy. Perfect for an after school snack. I generally encourage the children to eat them outside as they are pretty crumbly.
As with many of my recipes, I had an assortment of various items left in the fridge that I wanted to use, and thought that a nice ham and vegie muffin would be something my son would enjoy (which he did!).
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.
