Yummy and moist muffins. Not too sweet. I love the crunchiness! Preserves suggestion: peach/apricot works well.

I took my first bite of these and thought, "wow, these are pretty dense." I thought about it for a second and then looked at the recipe... yep, no oil! I hadn't even realized! They did turn out very well, still fairly moist but a little more 'bready' than I'm used to my muffins being. The flavor was very good. I did replace the sour cream with buttermilk and used organic apricot preserves and I did leave out the vanilla (I'm out) and the salt. Not too sweet, but still lovely. I love pecans! For a non/very low fat muffin these are great. BF and I both liked the dense bready texture and enjoyed the extra flavor the preserves added. Thanks!

These were very good. The pecans add a nice crunch(even though I forgot to toast them) and I used apricot preserves and they gave a great flavor. They were very easy to make. The batter is thicker than typical muffin batter but the muffins turn out very moist. These would be a nice addition to a brunch menu or a great afternoon snack.
