Vegan Pear and Granola Muffin Recipe

I love nothing more than 100% guilt-free desserts. However, once in a while, especially for special occasions, I think it is totally ok to indulge in a little guilty pleasure.  This delicious pear and granola muffin recipe is one such exception. While it might not be totally guilt free, it is totally worth the occasional calorie splurge.

Make it. Enjoy it. Share it with others and let me know how you liked it.
