Gluten Free Vegan Pear Crumb Muffins. Tender, spiced muffins with diced fresh pears. A lovely fall breakfast treat!Tender, spiced muffins with diced fresh pears. These gluten free vegan pear crumb muffins make quite the fall breakfast treat!

Are you more likely to go for a sweet muffin or a savory bagel in the morning? I can usually go either way. I have a genuine weakness for freshly baked muffins, which is probably why I bake them so often. However, sometimes a toasted gluten free everything bagel slathered with dairy free butter just hits the spot. 

It felt like a good time to come up with a new muffin recipe. Can you really ever have too many? This time, I wanted to create one that went with the season {fall happens to be my most favorite season}. Pear muffins, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, with a lovely crumb topping. That for sure sounded like a muffin I could fully support.

With a fall-inspired flavor profile, I don’t think I need to convince you that these muffins are delicious. The muffins are moist and tender, with diced sweet pears throughout. The subtlety of spice just enhances the flavor of the pears and the crumb topping, well, it’s like the icing on the cake. I love a good crumb topping on my muffins and this one does not disappoint.

Wether you are a muffin person or a bagel person, you will find these gluten free vegan pear crumb muffins quite scrumptious. On a chilly morning, they go well with a cup of hot tea or your latte of choice.
