Vanilla Pear Muffins
Ingredients1 h servings 240 cals
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease or line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
- Whisk whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk yogurt, oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until smooth. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture until batter is just mixed; fold in pear and pecans. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
- Place muffin tin in the preheated oven; reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake until tops of muffins are browned and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Cook's Note:
- Select a firm-fleshed pear such as the Bosc variety, as a softer fleshed pear will tend to 'melt' into the batter.

I chose this recipe to use up some vanilla yogurt and pears. I was somewhat surprised that the main flavor of these muffins was of the whole wheat flour and the pecans topping each muffin. I did...
This was a great recipe. Instead of adding oil I substituted applesauce and added just over half of the sugar. Turned out really good. The applesauce made them more dense and not cakey which was...
Very yummy! I made mini muffin bites instead of larger muffins. I also used canned pears I didn't have any fresh ones to use but they still came out great and full of flavor! I also used banan...
Loved this -- even with my "healthy" swaps! I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, used just 1 tbs of oil and replaced the rest of the oil with 1/2 cup applesauce. To make the consistency lighter, I used K...
