This is a family favorite recipe that can be made year round. It’s a nice, healthy, yet sweet, treat that everyone… including kids, can enjoy! As an added bonus, these babies are great to bake and then freeze for later! So for those of you considering Freezer Cooking or Meal Planning, this is a great recipe to keep in mind for just those times!
I’m not a huge walnut fan so I tend to make them with pecans, although you can swap them out for whatever nuts you like.

Moist and sweet with a deliciously tender crumb, these muffins won’t last long.
