The weekends are usually busy for us, but we always find time for a special breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, baked oatmeal, scones, or muffins are a must! We always mix it up, but Saturday and Sunday are made for enjoying special breakfasts.
Last weekend we turned on Saturday morning cartoons for Caleb and made Honey Pear Muffins.
I love making muffins because they are simple and so satisfying. I love that every person gets their own little treat!
The pear and honey combo wins again with these marvelous muffins! The muffins are sweet with a hint of fall spices and dotted with juicy pear pieces. We topped our muffins with a drizzle of honey and savored every single bite!
Honey Pear Muffins will make your weekend a little sweeter. Make a batch and enjoy!
