Hazelnut pears muffins

These hazelnut pears muffins are delicious for breakfast or a snack. I love baking desserts a lot and I love experimenting with different, unrefined flours, as well as the various types of plant based milk and whole sugars.

Oat flour and milk, still little used in desserts, become perfect ingredients to make nutrient cakes, especially suitable for children.

Panela sugar is special: moist, perfumed, it is not refined and maintains the taste and nourishment of whole foods.

Hazelnuts are the added value in cakes, particularly if they are toasted. They release an unmistakable scent and make the dough soft. Pears, melting in the oven with the rest of the ingredients, are the key to a simple recipe, yet special because of the quality of the ingredients used.
