Low Fat Pear Muffins

According to about.com, these pear muffins are a delightful Fall treat. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg add a nice flavor. As always, these muffins are at their best warm from the oven, but they freeze well, too. I can't wait to try them on a crisp Autumn morning.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper muffin cups.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and spices in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine milk, egg and canola oil.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add milk mixture. Stir until just moist. Fold in chopped pear.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling them 2/3 full, and bake for 20 minutes.

We really liked these. Even with equal amounts of whole wheat pastry flour and white flour, they were light and fluffy. Perfect sweetness and a lovely hint of spice. Thank you for posting.

Ours came out a little dry but still a good taste for low fat muffins. Thanks for this one.

Delicious pear muffins. I used only all-purpose flour, skim milk, and a sprinkle of brown sugar on top. Baked 18 minutes (at high altitude) and they are terrific.
