140 cals. COOKINGLIGHT.COM Fragrant pears and walnuts make an unbeatable combination. For this recipe, you can use any type of pear available, though we suggest Anjou or Bartlett. Adding ground walnuts to these muffins results in a delightful richness. Turbinado sugar has large blond crystals and a subtle molasses flavor; substitute granulated sugar if you don't have turbinado.
