A recipe that I've had for years. Baking time depends on the size of the muffins.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat the eggs, onion, and butter until blended; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened.
  3. Fold in walnuts.
  4. Fill greased or paper-lined miniature muffin cups 3/4 full.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 10-12 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool, for 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire racks.
  7. Yield: 3 dozen minis or 1 dozen regular muffins.
  8. Note: If using regular-size muffin cups, bake for 20-25 minutes.

I was looking for something different and ran across this recipe in my taste of home cookbook. I didn't see this as working but after reading the previous review I decided to make it. They are very good. I thought the sugar may be too much but it wasn't and I thought it called for too many nuts but it was wasn't. I didn't have enough walnuts so I used pecans with it. I also had to add some milk because I thought they were too thin. I will be making the again. We loved em.

I was just going to post this recipe myself but thought I better see if anyone else had first. Sure enough, Barb did. Anyway, these are my favorite muffins! If you like onions then you must try these. YUMMMMM!!!
