Chocolate and Pear Muffins

Chocolate and pear, the perfect combination. When you sweeten with fruit rather than large amounts of refined sugar, you know you’ve got a winner you can comfortably go back for seconds for! These have been a hit at my place in the afternoon, full or fibre and chocolately goodness and an absolute cinch to make!

You will need:

  • 50g salted butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1 pear
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup wholemeal flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 180˚C
  2. Place butter in a heat proof dish, then into the microwave on high for 30 seconds to soften and melt
  3. Remove butter from microwave, add brown sugar, cocoa powder and almond butter
  4. Stir to thoroughly combine, removing any lumps then set aside
  5. Add eggs to a large mixing bowl, whisk until light and fluffy
  6. Mash banana and add to eggs, combine
  7. Grate pear, add to banana and eggs, combine
  8. Add milk to egg mixture and combine
  9. Sift in flour and baking powder and gently combine then pour in chocolate mixture, combine until entirely incorporated
  10. Spoon batter into a lined muffin tray and bake for 20 minutes
  11. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack then store in an airtight container in the fridge
