Heart-Smart Sweet Potato Muffins

2. Combine whole-wheat flour and next six ingredients (whole-wheat flour through salt) in a mixing bowl.
3. Combine milk, egg whites and oil in a separate bowl. Whisk well.
4. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the well and stir until just combined. Gently fold in sweet potato and pears.
