You are right, these do go great with a cup of coffee, because they are not really sweet! ThanksKitt!
Oh Kit! These are soooo good!! Didn't use any pecans but used leftover Christmas chocolate chips (red and green). Thanks Kit!!
Everyday my DH takes a store bought granola bar to work as breakfast- I decided that I could just as easily make some muffins for the family. I chose this recipe based on the ingredients I happened to have around the house, and I love cinnamon! These muffins were easy to make and taste wonderful. I doubled the cinnman, I was out of nutmeg so I used allspice and only used half the recommended amount of pecans and chips. I will definately be making these again! Next time I plan to make a double batch so I can freeze some.
