A light, moist, healthy muffin chock full of pears and topped with a sweet crumble topping.
Serves: 12 Muffins
Ingredients
  • ¾ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 5.3 oz container vanilla greek yogurt
  • ½ cup sugar or presweet tagatose
  • ¼ cup egg substitute or 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted (or canola oil)
  • 2 tbsp. milk (your favorite kind)
  • ¾ cup pears, peeled, diced small
  • Crumb Topping
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cold
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. In another bowl, mix together yogurt, sugar, egg, coconut oil and milk; until combined. Stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in pear.
  5. Evenly scoop batter into prepare muffin cups. I filled my batter to the top of the muffin tin. That way it would rise over the top.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  7. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
  9. Note: You can use plain greek yogurt instead of vanilla, just add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to batter.
