Oatmeal, Pear, and Apple Muffins


These muffins feature a neat trick that you can use in other recipes for baked goods: Grating on the large holes of a box grater is a quick and easy alternative to having to chop the pear and apple, and the shavings will be more evenly distributed throughout the batter -- and the baked treats. Replacing some of the white flour with whole wheat and oats gives the muffins chewier texture and a more wholesome nutritional profile (read: more fiber).


30 grams skim milk
20 grams peanut oil
20 grams olive oil
70 grams light brown sugar
1 eggs
90 grams all-purpose flour
40 grams flour (wholewheat)

80 grams pears (grated)
80 grams apples (grated)


1Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2Add the milk, peanut oil, olive oil, sugar and egg to a medium bowl. Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes.
3In a separate bowl, mix the flours, oats, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add to the liquid mixture and mix well to combine.
4Add the grated fruit and combine gently with a large spoon.
5Distribute the dough in silicone molds or cupcake pans with paper liners.
6Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
