Recipe description

These tasty muffins were created in collaboration with the Queensland Country Women’s Association’s (QCWA) Country Kitchens program. They’re made without any added sugar as the sweetness from the dates and pears provides a delicious caramel flavour.

If canned pears are unavailable, switch out for tinned apples or peaches.
