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!
· 3/4 cup low-fat milk
· 1/2 cup applesauce
· 1 egg
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 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:
"Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it."
