Breakfast Muffins


Here is a slightly healthy take on the breakfast Muffin. I love the cheery, wheat and pecan mix in these muffins.

Cherry Pecan Muffins
Recipe adapted from Stoneyfield Farms

Ingredients:
  • 1 C flour
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 C frozen cherries, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C yogurt
  • 1/4 C butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C Pecans


Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375℉.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flours, sugar, and baking soda.
  • Stir in cherries and pecans, then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, butter and vanilla.
  • Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet.
  • Divide batter evenly amongst a 12-cup muffin tin that has been greased or lined with papers.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
