These tasty pear and almonds muffins are sweetened with honey and are diabetes-friendly!




  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or butter the muffin pan.
  2. Drain the pears and cut into cubes. Reserve the drained pear juice. You will need 3/4 cup (180 ml) of liquid, so add water to the pear juice if necessary.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, ground almonds, oats, baking powders, spices and salt.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the honey and butter. Whisk in the eggs, pear juice and pears. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir lightly with a fork just until the flour is just moistened. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans. Sprinkle with the slivered almonds and drizzle with the honey.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack.
