NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 12-capacity standard muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mix together the pecans, 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar and the cinnamon.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose and whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and the oil until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Whisk in the applesauce and vanilla.

Whisk in the flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the buttermilk. Whisk just until combined. Gently stir in the apple chunks.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan and sprinkle with the pecan mixture. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center of one of the muffins comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the muffins to loosen them and unmold. Cool completely on the rack.

Keep refrigerated! Made these the first time for a snow trip with 3 other families and they were a huge hit! Only problem is they molded quickly. I didn't think to keep them in the fridge because of the chunks of fruit in them. I made them for the 2nd time today and will keep them in the fridge from day 1! I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and no all purpose and they turned out great both times! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are yummy! I didn't have whole wheat flour so I substituted oat flour. Also didn't have applesauce so I added another chopped apple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
excellent muffins! I need 1.5 times the cinnamon sugar though, just a heads up :D item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, but I put my pecans (1/2c) and cinnamon in the batter, instead of on the top. I also added wheat germ and ground flax, as well as using white whole wheat flour. I will definitely make these again-may add more cinnamon next time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
