Paleo pear muffins are one of the best muffin recipes I’ve ever made! This pear muffin recipe is also grain-free, refined sugar-free, gluten free and dairy-free. These muffins are light, fluffy and surprisingly healthy…but nobody will know!
These paleo pear muffins are a delicious no-guilt breakfast your whole family will love! You will feel good in serving these healthy muffins. This paleo muffin recipe is also low carb!
One of my New Year’s resolutions for my blog is to offer more grain-free and paleo recipes on the blog. Many people who can’t eat gluten have reactions to other grains and feel “stuck” when it comes to baking options.
One reason I love to use almond flour in my recipes is that it adds a protein boost. This morning, my family is enjoying fresh paleo pear muffins for breakfast.
What Makes This Pear Muffin Recipe Healthy
These paleo pear muffins are super healthy. They are filled with the good stuff, like high protein almond flour, flaxseed meal, and I used low glycemic coconut sugar as a sweetener. Go ahead and have seconds with breakfast. :-). My Paleo Carrot Breakfast Muffins are another delicious healthy muffin recipe to try!
Baking with bosc pears
When coming up with the fruit to go into these, I decided to use ripe bosc pears. Bosc pears are sweet and a little more firm than other varieties of pear. You can use any type of pear, Anjou pears are also great! Their honey-sweet flavor adds another dimension to these muffins.
The cinnamon flavor adds to the flavor of these muffins for a delicious paleo breakfast option. Any fruit will work in this paleo muffin recipe.
You can also use these fruits in this paleo muffin recipe:
- Blueberries, and other berries.
- Apples (go for tart varieties like Granny Smith and Fuji)
- Cranberries, especially around the holidays!
Baking with Almond Flour
If you have a local Costco, I highly recommend finding this Honeyville Almond Flour. This almond flour is by far my favorite to bake with. It is ground super fine, so baked goods don’t have a gritty texture. And even better, it is certified
And even better, it is certified gluten free. (You can also find it on Amazon if you don’t have a Costco in your area.) Anthony’s also makes a very finely ground almond flour.
Baking with Coconut Flour
You will love using coconut flour in your homemade muffin recipes. I used Anthony’s Coconut Flour. It is certified gluten free and comes in a resealable bag.
TIP: One important thing to note when baking with coconut flour is you need to use a lot more liquid than if you were using a gluten free flour blend.
