Fat Free Pear Granola Muffins

Fat Free Pear Granola Muffins

These are great because they are fat free- perfect for breakfasts on the go or a quick snack!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place your paper liners in 30 muffin tins.  To get started, wash and peel 4-5 pears depending on their size and then chop into 1/4 inch pieces.

In a large bowl combine 2 c flour, 4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt with 2 tbsp cinnamon.  Once mixed together, set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together 4 eggs, 1 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 c nonfat milk, and 4 tbsp oil.

Add the egg mixture into the center of the flour mixture and stir until just combined.  Gently fold in with a spatula 1 1/2 c oats and the diced pears.

Once fully combined, fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full.

To make the granola topping mix 1 c oats, 1/2 c flour, 1/2 c brown sugar and a pinch of salt.  This will leave the muffins fat free.  If you want, feel free to cut in 6 tbsp butter to the crisp topping.

Top each muffin cup with just enough granola to cover the batter.

Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, let cool and enjoy!
