Pears and honey are a delicious combo and I use the combo a lot. For example, in our Pear, Brie, and Honey Quesadillas and in our Grilled Pear, Brie, and Honey Crostini. Sooooo good!

  1. These are my favorite muffins!!! I have made them for several people and they always ask for your recipe. They are in my oven baking right now. I believe the honey makes them extra sweet.

    I don’t usually comment on recipes, but I really wanted to thank you for this one! Made these yesterday and they were DELICIOUS!!!! I love the honey, pear and spice combination and the crunchy sugar topping. They’re moist and sweet and insanely good. I am making a second batch right now!

    I have a box of pears that are right on the other side of their prime. I also happened to have buttermilk in the fridge so this recipe is just what I needed! They are delicious!

  4. They look and sound so good! I want to make these this week. I have planned to bake some muffins for my parents as they will be visiting my home soon. I’m sure they would love this! Thank you so much for the recipe!

  5. Just made these and they came out great! We baked them for only 16 minutes and used a buttermilk substitute (oat milk with lemon). Thanks for the recipe!
