Pear Nutmeg Walnut Bran Muffins


1 cup or 250 ml All-Bran Original* cereal
1 cup or 250 ml unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp or 25 ml lemon juice
1 cup or 250 ml all-purpose flour
1/4 cup or 50 ml lightly packed brown sugar
4 tsp or 20 ml baking powder
1/2 tsp or 2 ml each, baking soda and ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp or 1 ml salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup or 50 ml melted butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups or 375 ml diced, cored Bartlett pears, skin on (about 1 1/2 medium pears)
1/2 cup or 125 ml finely chopped walnuts
2 tbsp or 25 ml finely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp or 15 ml brown sugar


1. In medium bowl, combine cereal, applesauce and lemon juice. Let stand for 2 minutes or until cereal softens.

2. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

3. Add eggs and margarine to cereal mixture; beat well. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients, stirring only until just combined. Fold in pears and walnuts. Portion batter evenly into 12 (2½”/6.5 cm) non-stick muffin pan cups, lightly coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle each with portion of walnut-brown sugar topping mixture.

4. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 20 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.

Tip: Pears should be ripe but still firm for this recipe. Since they ripen from the centre outwards, a good indication of ripeness is the feel of a slight give when the pear flesh close to the stem is gently pressed.
