Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • large egg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened milk of choice
  • 1/3 cup neutral oil of choice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups finely diced pears
  • 1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper cups or lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon until just combined.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the egg, honey, milk, oil and vanilla extract until just combined.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine, then gently fold in the chopped pears, oats and walnuts trying not to over mix the batter; stir until just combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups, filling them 2/3s of the way (about 1/4 cup).
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a cooling rack.

Notes

For a yummy bakery-style muffin, I like to mix a little brown sugar, rolled oats and chopped walnuts and sprinkling on the muffins before baking.
