So I bake like I crochet and knit. A bit of a recipe, a lot of changes. Never sure what sort of flavors sound good to me. Muffins are my fun play around food. Today we made Banana Kiwi muffins and Pear Carrot Raisin Kiwi muffins. Used my new favorite basic muffin recipe, made a double batch and added in the rest. Here's the basic recipe along with the bits for these muffins. However, I don't measure everything so the spice is approximate.


  • 1.5 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

  • .5 Cup All-Purpose Flour

  • 2 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

  • .25 tsp Salt

  • .5 Cup White Sugar

  • .25 Cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 Cup Canola Oil

  • 3 Eggs, beaten

I added

1 Pear chopped

2 Kiwis smashed up

.5 Cup Raisins

.25 Cup Carrot Juice

1 tsp Chai Spice Blend (Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg)

Put pears, kiwi, and raisins in a bowl with carrot juice mixed up in the fridge for at least 3o minutes. Helps plump the raisins and give a little flavor to the rest.

And added to the second batch.

2 Bananas smashed up

2 Kiwis smashed up

1 tsp Chai Spice Blend (Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins or use muffin cups.

In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Make a well in the center add eggs and oil. Mix just till evenly moist. Fold in fruits.

Bake 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and enjoy.
