Chocolate and pear muffins

We have been having some ugly weather for the past couple days which made me crave comfort food.

I had a couple pears on the verge of getting spoiled, so it was an easy call to combine those with chocolate and almond to make some delicious snack.


  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 70 g sunflower oil
  • 2 pears
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g almond meal
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 11g baking powder


  1. Melt chocolate and oil, smooth and pour this mixture into a bowl.
  2. Skin the pears and remove the non-edible parts and dice them.
  3. Mix into the chocolate/oil cream, with an electric mixer, the following: eggs, almond meal, baking powder, and sugar.
  4. Add the diced pears, and use a wooden spoon to gently mix them in.
  5. Pour into muffins pan and bake for 20 minutes at 180°C.
  6. Stick a knife into a muffin, if it comes out clean, muffins are ready.
  7. Let cool a bit and enjoy!
