Allergy-free: Egg-free walnut and pear muffins

Please note that allergy free posts cover my daughter's personal allergies - eggs, sesame and all nuts but walnuts and does not constitute medical advice.

Thought I'd try these as a bit of a fast brekky solution as well as a possible replacement for the dried fruit in the lunchbox or for arvo tea for Little Miss O.  These are free of Little Miss O's allergens and could be adapted to suit yours - flour, milk, butter substitutes could be used and the walnuts could be left out entirely.

1.5 cups of wholemeal spelt flour
3 tsps baking powder
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 cup of milk (any milk of your choice)
60g butter (might fiddle around with it later to see if I could use coconut oil or some such)
1 pear (cut into small pieces)
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup sultanas
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger

Combine all the ingredients except the pear in a bowl and mix well. Once it has been mixed, add the pear and fold in gently.

Spoon into 12 muffin cases and bake at 180 degree for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

YUM.  These rise well and are lovely and moist.
