I don't know about you but pears are one of my favourite English Autumn fruits (alongside a good apple). Pear-ing greatly with almond butter, a hint of cinnamon and lashings of Salted Caramel sauce - these blondies are your ultimate pick me up on a cold, rainy afternoon.
- 2 medium pears, chopped
-1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 250g plain flour
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger and nutmeg
- 100g golden sugar
- 100g sweetener (or more sugar)
- pinch of salt
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 150g almond butter
- 50g coconut oil, melted
- salted caramel sauce and crushed almonds to top (optional)
Preheat oven to 175C. In a bowl mix together the pears, syrup and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the mashed banana, almond butter, coconut oil and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms (add a dash of milk if necessary).
Line a square cake tin with parchment and pour in the mixture. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes (until a skewer comes out smooth). For cake-ier, less moist blondies bake for an extra 5 minutes.
Leave to cool before transferring to a wire rack and topping with almonds and vegan salted caramel sauce.
