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.

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.
