Who would have thought of pairing Bananas with pear ?? Well..someone with a creative mind did. Or else I wouldn’t have been presenting this recipe to you guys ’cause Icouldn’t, in my wildest of dreams, think of this twist. I was pleasantly surprised when I read about this combination. My tryst with this dish came onlyyesterdaywhen I had both pear as well as bananas together in my pantry. So here I am.
The muffin predominantly tastes of Banana but biting into the chunks of pear and nuts gives an interesting twist. I got this recipe from Julie’s blog Dinner with Julie.

- Spoon the batter into muffin tins that are lined with paper liners or sprayed with nonstick spray, filling them about 3/4 full.
