Muffin Monday: Apple and Pecan

Here's a lovely looking recipe I found on Simple Daily Recipes. There's nothing like a warm muffin on a cold morning--slightly sweet, with tasty spices and just the right amount of nuts!

Wet ingredients:
·         3/4 cup low-fat milk
·         1/2 cup applesauce
·         1 egg
·         1 teaspoon vanilla

Dry ingredients:
·         2 cups flour
·         1/2 cup brown sugar
·         1 tablespoon baking powder
·         1 teaspoon salt
·         1 teaspoon cinnamon
·         1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
·         1 small apple, peeled, cored & chopped
·         1/2 cup toasted pecans

Preheat oven 400ºF degrees. Grease bottoms of muffin cups.
In a small bowl, whisk the wet ingredients.  In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and make a well in center of bowl.  Pour in wet ingredients and slowly stir together until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Do not over mix the batter.
For the mini-muffin pan, I used a small (1 teaspoonful) scooper, for uniform muffins.  This recipe made 24 mini-muffins plus 2 regular size muffins; or 12 regular muffins.
Bake the MINI-muffins 10-12 minutes.
Bake REGULAR size muffins 18-20 minutes.

Something to chew on while your muffins bake:
