What to do with apples and pears that are starting to go bad? Why not make muffins! A few days ago I had two left apples and two pears and as I was about to make a compote with it, I changed my mind at the last moment and made these really moist Apple, Pear and Almond Muffins. Everyone loved it!

Apple, Pear and Almond Muffins (really moist!)

How do you make muffins extra moist?

I love it when the muffins are ultra moist and there with this recipe it is absolutely the case! For this recipe, I put relatively a lot of fruits which makes these super fluffy muffins not dry at all. Even after three days (and yes… I had to restrain myself not to eat them all on day one!) they were just as moist.

I also added almond powder to the dough and reduced the amount of flour compared to most recipes. This makes the muffins less compact.

Finally, there is a step in the recipe that looks like nothing but is very important: beat the eggs with the sugar. Don’t skip this step, it creates air, and if you have air in your dough, the muffins will also be softer after baking.

    Thank you so much, Géraldine. I added all of the juice and some extra almond meal and it was perfect. My whole family loved this recipe and it wasn’t too sweet, so I felt happy to give them to my young sons as a healthy treat. I will be making more this weekend!

    1. Thank you Michelle! You’re right, these muffins are not too sweet, perfect for kids 🙂

    Hello Geraldine, I have just discovered your blog and your recipes look lovely. This is the first recipe I am trying from your blog. I have one question. When I cooked my apples and pears, a lot of juices were released. Do I add all of the juices to the mix or just the fruit? Or only a certain amount of the juice? Thanks for your help! Best regards, Michelle

    1. Dear Michelle,
      Thank you so much and I am so glad to hear that you like me recipes.
      I add fruits with the juice to the mix, it’s full of flavors! The quantity of juice released by the fruits depends on the type of pears and apples that you use. If you have the feelings it’s too much juice, just add 1/2 of the juice.
      Best,
      Géraldine
