    Pears and walnuts pair up so well together! Anjou or Bartlett pears work well for this recipe. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine(Jan/2006). Enjoy!

      I love when you can get a wonderful tasting muffin while using healthier ingredients. This muffin recipe is a winner. I loved the moistness of the muffins and the flavors were perfect. Thank you!

      These are such a welcome trea this time of year using winter pears. I didn't bother pealing the pears either. Left the delicious brown skins right on. I also used coarsely chopped toasted almonds in place of the walnuts. I got 12 nice size muffins. I like using just 2 T. of oil too. Makes em a little more LF than a normal muffin and the vanilla yogurt was a welcome addition for perfect moistness. Made in memory of Sharon's DH in KK's forum.

      My boss has a pear tree. He brought in a bushel of pears to the office. I brought a dozen home. I ate a few of them and it wasn't until I found this recipe that I figured out what to do with some of the other pears. I doubled the batch & used the vanilla yogurt. They are fantastic. I froze some so they would not disappear immediately.The most moist & delicious muffins ever.
