These delicious Pear Blueberry and Ginger Muffins are sweetened only fruit and taste so good. With no added sugar, these muffins are perfect for school lunches and snacks.


  • one overripe medium banana, mashed (100g)
  • 1/2 cup low flavoured olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup self raising flour


  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and grease your muffin tin, using liners if you prefer
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the banana, oil, eggs, yogurt, cinnamon and ginger until well combined
  3. Stir in the pear and blueberries until combined then add in flour and stir until just combined
  4. Add the muffins to the tin and bake for around 15 minutes or until lightly golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean
  5. Cool slightly in the tin before transferring onto a wire baking rack.
