Cinnamon Pecan Muffins

For desert, Colleen prepared a basic muffin recipe for the South Arm Seniors Kitchen.


The Cinnamon Pecan Muffin is a relatively basic recipe. You can substitute milk with soy milk, apple sauce or orange juice. You can substitute the nuts with dried fruits. You might want to alter the cinnamon with other spice like nutmeg when you make substitution of the ingredients as some of the substitutions may not go well with cinnamon.

One of the participant commented that the muffin will be great to dunk in coffee or tea. This muffin has a crispy crust which most of the participants liked.
