This is an old favorite of mine that I've made for the last 20 years or so. I think the original came from a magazine, and I tweaked it a bit to suit my tastes. If you don't have pecans, feel free to use walnuts.

Great Muffins- we love apples in our muffins and the pecans make for over the top - can see this one on for the next twenty years here too! Made half a recipe - now wishing I had made the full batch to have extra for those holiday coffee times! Definitely a repeatable! Made for 'Let's Party' 2009.

Great muffins, moist and delicious! I only added about 1/2 cup of pecans as that's all I had, otherwise made as specified. I got 18 muffins out of this and had a little more batter left, just no more muffin tins to put it in :) Thanks for posting your recipe!
