Pear Oat and Walnut Muffins

Oat Pear Walnut Muffins

Let me introduce you to this delicious fall muffin. This muffin recipe is a result of over-buying pears on my part! I love pears, but when they all ripen at the same rate I get scrambling in the kitchen to use them up before they go bad! I decided that pears, oats, and walnuts were a great combination and guess what? I was right! These muffins are moist, sweet, and have just the right texture from the oats and walnuts. These muffins are a perfect snack or quick breakfast on the go (we all need serious Christmas shopping fuel this time of year!)
