Lightly oil a muffin pan or line a baking pan with paper muffin cups.
Beat the eggs in large mixing bowl. Stir in the buttermilk, molasses, canola
oil, brown sugar, and ginger. Mix until smooth.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flours, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg,
and salt. Add to the buttermilk mixture along with the crystallized ginger. Mix well.
Divide the batter among the cups of the muffin pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until
a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Serve the muffins warm with sliced fresh pears on the side.

Tip: You can keep the batter tightly covered in the fridge for a couple of days
and bake small batches each morning to enjoy warm, fresh-baked muffins. You may need
to add a couple of minutes to the cooking time when using refrigerated batter.
Just be sure to check that the muffins are fully cooked and not runny inside.
