Pear and Chocolate-Chip Muffins Recipe

Pear and Chocolate-Chip Muffins Recipe

Occasionally I have some fresh pears left over that my kids do not fancy eating in their lunch boxes. I hate to see good food go to waste though (I am constantly telling my kids about how much effort a farmer goes to just to get this fresh fruit on our table) so I often use over ripe fruit in my cooking. A little bit of apple of pear in a stew or roasting pan is normally a lovely addition.

This recipe is a great way to use fresh pear in your baking. Just peel and dice 1-2 fresh pears and they can go straight into the mixture. This recipe makes  a delicious after school snack or even an occasional lunch box treat and like all muffins, they are best eaten straight out of the oven.
