Tofino Banana-Pear Muffins

Tofino Banana-Pear Muffins

AuthorJulie

2-3 large very ripe bananas
1/2-3/4 cup sugar, white or brown
2 large eggs
2-4 Tbsp. canola or olive oil
1 tsp vanilla (if you have it)
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, or half all-purpose and half whole wheat
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 ripe pear, roughly chopped (don't bother peeling it)
½ cup chopped walnuts

1

Preheat oven to 375F.

2

In a medium bowl, mash together the bananas, sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla with a potato masher or spatula until blended and the bananas are well mashed - don't worry about getting all the lumps out. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, and stir just until the batter starts coming together; add the pear and walnuts, or whatever additions you are using, and stir just until combined. Don't overmix, or your muffins could be tough.

3

Spoon the batter into muffin tins that are lined with paper liners or sprayed with nonstick spray, filling them about 3/4 full. If you like, sprinkle the tops with coarse sugar. Bake for20-30 minutes, depending on the size of your muffins, until golden and the tops are springy to the touch.
