Maple Pecan Muffins

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Deb in TX

Super flavorful whole grain muffin sweetened with maple syrup and chock full of pecans. The first time I made these my husband kept saying, "Do NOT lose this recipe! This is great!" I don't remember where I originally saw it, but I'm posting it here for safekeeping at his request.

These are delicious! They have a great taste and texture, and they're easy to make. I made them for my girlfriend and she said, "Best muffins ever!" I have to agree. I was really happy to find a recipe for muffins using white whole wheat flour. If you have other recipes using it, please post. Thanks!
