Paleo Banana & Pear Muffins

These muffins are deliciously soft and melt in your mouth. They are great for toddlers through to adults.
Their taste reminds me of the Sara Lee Banana cake that we used to buy for parties as a child.

    I am no cook by no means so I’m a little confused what the temperature of the oven should be :/

      Hi Dinorah, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. If you are using fahrenheit then preheat it to 356 fahrenheit.
      Hope this helps 🙂
