"Vanilla and pear are a flavor-match made in heaven. Tender, light, and moist, and with the added goodness of whole wheat flour, these sweet vanilla pear muffins are great for breakfast or a snack. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. These muffins do not freeze well."

whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons
low-fat vanilla yogurt
ripe pear - peeled, cored, and diced
I just wanted to mention this recipe works best with a firm fleshed pear such as the D'anjou or Bosc variety as a softer fleshed pear (such as Bartlett) can tend to 'melt' into the batter and may affect the outcome. If you make these muffins, I do hope you enjoy them, and thank you for trying the recipe.
what lovely muffins! my sons devoured these this morning, freezing the rest for their lunches. I doubled the recipe and got 20 muffins that baked in 25 minutes. I used all whole wheat flour and added a dash of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cardamon. I also doubled the pears as I had quite a few ripe pears to use up, thanks for a great pear recipe!
Delicious and moist! I substituted some almond meal in for a portion if the flour and added a bit of cinnamon for good measure. Great muffins! They were a hit! :)
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 banana flavored yogurt instead of the plain vanilla yogurt because that was what I had in my fridge at the time! I will definitely will keep making these!
I reduced the oil to 1/4 cup and increased the yogurt to 1/2 cup. I also cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. The flavour was fantastic and there was a slight crispness to the outside but still very moist inside.
Muffins were great! They were moist and yummy. I made a double batch and added an extra pear.
