Maple Pecan Muffins

"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!

    These are delicious! I made a few small changes just because of what I had onhand. I used regular all purpose flour and made these into mini-muffins to add to my cookie plate for my daughter's teachers and office staff. The maple flavor is perfect! I also added some finely chopped pecans to the topping. I will be making a second batch shortly because this first one is almost gone! I'm also going to bake some of the dough without the pecans just so I have a handful of nut free. I'm sure they'll be just as delicious!

    What a great muffin! Subtle maple flavor with the crunch of pecans. I did have to make some alterations since I mill my own flour: added 1 snack cup of unsweetened applesauce (added moisture), oil instead of butter (personal pref for moisture) and 1/2 tsp Watkins maple extract (fresh milled wheat has flavor and can mask the flavor profile in some baked goods). I chose to top them with King Arthur's course Sparkling Sugar..... Nice crunchy texture for the top.

    These are great! I tweaked the recipe, I substitute the butter for oil, the vanilla extract for maple flavor and omit the cinnamon, just sugar and they are delish!
