Crunchy top pear muffins

I have been doing a huge amount of cooking and baking lately. I think its the cold weather and my need to hibernate…and whenever i have any spare time i usually spend it cooking!

I made these muffins when it was raining outside, and they really were super delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup walnut or any other nut oil
  • 1 pear, peeled and diced

Topping

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 180° and line a 12 hole muffin tin

Sift the flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl, add the oats and the 1/2 cup of brown sugar and stir together. Make a well in  the centre

Whisk together the eggs, yoghurt, oil. Pour into the well in the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold through pear, don’t overmix.

Spoon into muffin tin.

To make crumble topping: mix pecans with remaining brown sugar and sprinkle over muffins

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
