Here is another recipe from the P90X cookbook that is my husband's current diet regiment. I love how you can taste the little bits of pears in the muffin and they are also light in texture. It is a wonnderful recipe with only 2 TBSP of vegetable oil makes them very healthy too. They are a very beautiful muffin too. Enjoy.
