Lemon Pecan Oatmeal Muffins

I enjoy the hint of lemon in these hearty, and healthy muffins. Try adding a handful of dried cranberries to the batter just before spooning into the muffin tins. They add a tart sweetness that works well with the lemon.

I agree with Geema, the hint of lemon in these muffins is very nice. They're also very hearty and filling. I used soymilk and made them healthier by using Egg Beaters and unsweetened applesauce in place of half the oil. They were good, but I think they could have used a little more moisture and flavor. I bet the Craisins would be a nice touch!
