Harvest Spice Muffins (Apple-Pear Spice Muffins)

With an abundance of quickly ripening pears on the counter, and with a crowd of hungry little people to feed, I came up with these tender, lightly sweet, and surprisingly healthy muffins! They passed the Picky Sibling Test with flying colors. I modified a basic apple muffin recipe from a Pennyslvania bed and breakfast, making changes to make the muffins healthier and more unique. I hope you like them too! I used a mixture of apples and pears (two small Bartlett pears and one very small Pink Lady apple), but you could use just apples if that's all you have available. I also used white whole wheat flour (ground from white wheat), which is lighter than regular whole wheat (ground from red wheat). It has the exact same nutritional value but is not as strong-flavored or "heavy," so try it if you can find it!
