Tiny Pecan Muffins




These are my all time favorite muffins.  Quick and easy to prepare and so delicious. They are rich and sweet, with lots of pecans.  It's like popping a tiny pecan pie in your mouth.  They make the sweetest house warming gift; wrapped in celophane with a ribbon on top. 


Tiny Pecan Muffins
These muffins freeze very well and are great for breakfast, brunch, a snack or dessert.  Yields: 24

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup muscovado sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease mini-muffin pan with coconut oil or line with muffin liners.  In a food processor pulse together flour and muscovado until all of the lumps are broken up.  Pour into a large bowl.  Add melted butter, vanilla and eggs.  Stir until combined and then add pecans.  Using a teaspoon divide batter evenly among cups.  Bake 11 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool 3-4 minutes.  Turn pan over and thump the bottom to pop the muffins out of the pan.

What is muscovado sugar? Where might I find it? And what is the difference between muscovado sugar and sucanat? This looks delicious : )

Dori: Muscovado is a very dark brown sugar that can be found at most specialty stores. I only use it every once in a while when it's absolutely necessary for the texture of the dish. Sucanat (organic whole cane sugar) is dehydrated cane juice and is dark b/c the molassas hasn't been taken out. It contians many vitamins and minerals. It is a dry sugar unlike muscovado. In a pinch you can toss together 1 cup sucanat with 2 tablespoons maple syrup to get a great brown sugar substitute!
