Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Pears are an unusual muffin recipe that’s sure to make your taste buds sing! Better yet, they take no more than ten minutes to prep and 25 minutes to bake. Meaning you could have a warm, delicious muffin within the next 35 minutes!

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Pears

To make this recipe extra simple, use a yellow cake mix as the base. Then simply mix in water, a very ripe pear, eggs, quick oats, raisins, cinnamon, and chopped nuts.

The nuts are optional, but love the extra crunch (and nutrition!) that walnuts or pecans give these muffins.

You can make these muffins ahead of time and freeze them for later. Let the muffins cool completely and then flash freeze on a baking sheet for about an hour, or until each one is frozen solid. Transfer the frozen muffins into a freezer bag, label and date, and then store in the freezer for up to two months.
