Whole Wheat Pear Muffins

Muffins with pears! This is what my friends said with I told them as they were enjoying it. These are made with ripe pears and whole wheat flour, these muffins are healthy and delicious.  These are prepared for the Blogging Marathon.


2 Eggs
1 Cup Fresh Yogurt
1 Cup plus 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
1/3 Cup Vegetable oil
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 Tea
spoon Baking soda
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla essence
2 large Pears -  peeled, cored and diced
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Grease the muffin cups with oil or butter.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, a cup of the brown sugar, and oil until smooth. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the egg mixture. With a wooden spoon or spatula, gently mix together just until combined. Add the vanilla and diced pears and mix again. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, dividing it evenly among the cups. 

In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 2 Tbsp brown sugar and the cinnamon.  Sprinkle this mixture on top of the batter in each muffin cup. Bake the muffins about 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. I wish you could smell these muffins in my kitchen right now. 

Cool the muffins in the pan for 5 minutes, then unmould and cool them the rest of the way on a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.  I got 18 muffins.

These muffins are delicious! The crunchy topping is a perfect and soft. Enjoy these muffins for breakfast with a glass of cold milk or a steaming cup of coffee or anytime you feel like a snack.

Use ones that are just starting to go soft and juicy. These will hold their shape during cooking and will dissolve in your mouth.
