This is the best muffin ever.
Fresh picked pears or apples are especially good in these muffins. But you can enjoy them any time by substituting whatever fruit is in season. Any type of chopped nuts may be used in place of the walnuts as well.
Recipe from the Blooming Platter Cookbook and Betsy DiJulio.

Using a fork, stir together the ingredients until combined. Gently fold in the fruit. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.
