I adapted the recipe to suit my needs:

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup of grated pear (instead of apple)
  • 1/2 cup of apple juice (instead of 1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup of fresh or frozen wild blueberries (instead of 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • (no cinnamon)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Preparation

  1. Melt butter. Peel bananas. Grate 1 whole pear (maybe 2 depending on size of pears).
  2. Mash the ripe bananas, add the melted butter, egg, apple juice and grated pear and whisk everything together.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sift together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk some more. Add the blueberries.
  5. Scoop mixture into the muffin tray.

Cooking

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (instead of 370 as I found that this worked better on my oven) and grease a muffin tray (I used butter and mini cupcake tray). Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Break a muffin in half. Serve with a side of yogurt and steamed pear for a yummy and moist breakfast. My 15-month old loves it.

Yummy!
