Instructions
To Make the Streusel
  1. Place all the streusel ingredients in a small bowl and stir together with a fork. Set aside.

To Make the Muffins
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, and prepare a muffin tin with paper liners or non-stick spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine the milk, yogurt, pear puree, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just until barely combined. (Mixture should be very lumpy.)

  5. Fold in the diced pear and pomegranate arils, and place ⅓ cup of batter in each well of the prepared muffin pan.
  6. Top each muffin with a pinch of streusel.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees F, then turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
