Windward Muffins

We discovered this recipe from the Windward House Bed and Breakfast in Camden, Maine and had to share it with you. We love it with breakfast, brunch or served with a mixed green salad. Makes 8 muffins.



Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl. Add all of the dry ingredients (except nuts) and stir just until moistened, taking care not to over mix. Gently fold nuts in and spoon batter 2/3 full into greased muffin cups or use paper liners in a muffin pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes.

Note: The original recipe called for 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, but we found the extra tablespoon added just a touch more moisture. Try adding raisins, dried cherries or dried cranberries to the batter for a great variation!
