  1. What type of pears do you use ?

  2. These muffins look beautiful and absolutely delicious. I like that you used pear instead of apple, nice twist! I’m going to cook this on the weekend for my friends. I’m pretty sure they’ll like these muffins. Thank you for sharing this with us, Savanna!

  3. I make my own oat flour and added extra since the batter was so watery but this also turned out horribly for me. They completely deflated and did not cook all the way through even when I added 15 extra minutes. I wonder what went wrong?

  4. If I was to make these with 2 eggs instead of flax seeds, would I take out a 1/4 cup of liquid as well?

    1. Hi Ariana, That sounds about right. I’ve never made them with eggs though so I’m not sure how they’ll turn out. Good luck!

  5. Just wondering about the flaxseeds in this, want to make sure these turn out — do you measure out 4 tablespoons whole flaxseeds and then grind them up, or is it 4 tablespoons ground flaxseeds (flaxseed meal). Thanks for letting me know, these look so good!

    1. It’s 4 Tbsp flaxseed meal πŸ™‚

  6. Does 1Β½ c coconut milk mean one cup and a half of coconut milk? is it possible to substitute this ingredient without throwing off the receipe?

    1. Yes, one cup and a half. You could substitute this for another non-dairy milk of your liking. Almond milk or soy milk would work just as well πŸ™‚

  7. Savanna thank you for sharing this recipe .It is exactly what I needed when I came across it in a google search πŸ˜‰ .I have made them and they were sooooo light that they deflated to almost nothing and look like a pastry shell hahahaha . I thought the mixture looked too sloppy as I was mixing it , but I went ahead anyway . I double checked all my measurements because I have had sooooo many failures with vegan , gluten free , nutfree recipes that I am just about ready to give up trying .Any ideas on what might have happened ?

    1. Hi Jenjen!
      I’m so sorry to hear that these muffins didn’t turn out well for you! πŸ™ It’s difficult to say exactly why the recipe didn’t work out for you. If it helps, I find adding a bit more flour to “sloppy” mixes can usually do the trip. That’s the one thing I have discovered with gluten-free, vegan baking – it’s a lot of experimentation! Also, I make my own oat flour from scratch – maybe that could make a difference?

      1. Thankyou for your reply . I also make my own oat flour from scratch , so I am not sure either . I will keep trying , something has to work eventually πŸ˜‰

  8. I LOVE how healthy these are! such a delicious breakfast! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks, Michelle! They are great for an on-the-go breakfast πŸ™‚

  9. Savannah, you need to seriously write book on food photography- It is beyond amazing! The muffins look so good, I could eat those oat flakes from my screen!

    1. Arman, you are seriously the best! Thank you for such a fantastic compliment πŸ™‚

  10. These sound really good! I love pears! We eat tons of them in this house and muffins are such a quick easy breakfast or snack. Great for my kiddos when we’re on the go too! Can’t wait to make these!

    1. Agreed! We’ve been eating muffins for breakfast all week and I love it!
