Fresh Pear Muffins {Egg-free, Dairy-free}

I think it is safe to say that almost any overripe fruit or vegetable gets cooked at my house.  I hate wasting food and cooking helps it last a little longer.  I usually roast vegetables that have been around a little too long.  I think almost all overripe fruit ends up in some kind of muffin!  Yum!  Here is a recipe for pear muffins.  Enjoy!

Fresh Pear Muffins

1 c flour
1 c whole wheat flour
½ c sugar
½ c brown sugar
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
5 c pears, peeled and chopped (about 5)
½ c vegetable oil
¼ c honey
1 t vanilla
1 c chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350° and put paper liners in muffin cups.  Set aside.  Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, except for pecans (if using).  With an electric mixer, beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.  Stir in pecans.  Spoon evenly into prepared into paper lined muffin cups.  
Bake for about 20 minutes.  Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes.  Move to wire rack to cool completely.  
Makes about 2 dozen muffins.
