Spiced Pear & Apple Protein Muffins

Spiced Pear & Apple Protein Muffins

Pears are in season during Autumn and mixed with the right spices and our Madagascan Vanilla Organic Protein, they make scrumptious protein muffins! Recipe makes 12 muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 organic pears
  • 2 organic apples
  • 2 medium organic eggs
  • 100ml organic vegetable oil
  • 180ml organic semi-skimmed milk
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • 75g caster sugar 
  • 270g self raising flour
  • 35g (1 heaped scoop) Madagascan Vanilla organic whey protein powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Directions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200c/400F/180fan/gas 6.
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl with the oil and milk. 
  • Add the sugars and stir until dissolved into the mixture.
  • In another bowl, sieve the flour and add the whey, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder and nutmeg stirring until it all comes together. 
  • Finely dice the pears and apples and add them to the dry mixture (this helps them not to sink to the bottom of your muffins).
  • Now combine the wet and dry mixtures together.
  • Fill your chosen muffin cases on a tray to 2/3 full and the baking powder should give you a nice rise. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked through.
  • Serve warm with a chai latte or favourite hot drink and enjoy!
