I’m having a great day today and so much of that is because of you. Yes, you!! You fabulous, good looking person, you 😉
Gluten Free Vegan Pantry has been my little pet project for the last almost 4 months and I cannot believe how many people have viewed, shared, liked, loved, pinned, stumbled, yummed, and made my recipes. Let me tell you all: it is the most amazing feeling in the whole wide world!! It’s incredibly humbling and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for your support along this journey.
So today, I made you something extra special: Oatmeal Pear Muffins!
So here are some super yummy Oatmeal Pear Muffins for you cause I thought you might be in need of a new breakfast recipe.
Already had breakfast? No worries! Here’s a great snacktime recipe then!
Oh what’s that? You already had a snack today, too? Then never fret, it’s the perfect light, guilt-free dessert recipe!
See? I’ve always got your back, friend 🙂
I’m currently on a bit of a weightloss journey myself, after a crappy reaction to some medications that made me gain a whopping 15 lbs in a month - gulp! So, finding a balanced, healthy recipe option is always at the forefront of my mind now. I’ve become a huge grazer, basically snacking all day, but sometimes I just crave something a bit more substantial and these Oatmeal Pear Muffins are the perfect choice!
They’re vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar free! That’s right friends, these delicious little muffins are naturally sweetened and full of healthy goodness with each bite. Plus, the best part? You only need 10 easy ingredients to make these, ingredients that you probably already have on hand. See? Easy!
These Oatmeal Pear Muffins are light and fluffy, despite being a bit short and stout. As I took them out of the oven, they were the most gorgeous gluten-free muffins I had ever seen, nicely popping out and over their respective muffin tin. I actually did the best happy dance ever cause I just couldn’t believe how beautiful these muffins were. I mean, they looked like something off the cover of a cookbook! Then, disaster hit. They deflated. I was so, so sad. I thought for sure that they would be dense and heavy but boy, was I ever surprised!
I also wanted to thank those of you who have been making and sharing my recipes on Instagram. It’s so, so awesome to see your recipes made by a complete stranger turned new friend, sometimes on the opposite side of the globe. I mean really, how cool is that!?! Pretty cool indeed, friends!
So keep up with it, I absolutely adore it!!
