Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • 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.
