100% Whole Wheat Maple Pecan Muffins

I thought I'd share a favorite recipe today; this one is for 100% Whole Wheat Maple Pecan Muffins.  Using freshly ground wheat makes them even yummier and better for you!  These are a very light muffins, not too sweet, with the perfect hint of maple.

Here's what you'll need:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c chopped pecans
1/3 c real maple syrup
2 tbsp softened butter
1 egg
2/3 c water
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375F.  Oil a 12-cup muffin pan.

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together.  Stir in pecans.

Beat syrup and butter, then add the egg.  Add water, vanilla, and the dry ingredients, stirring just enough to mix.

Spoon into muffin pan, and bake 12 to 15 minutes.


Note:  I usually add a handful of chocolate chips to the muffins.  Just a variation! :o)
