Fruit and Nut Muffins


Makes 15 muffins

  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 apples, cored, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease or line 15 muffin cups.

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. 

Sift in the flour and baking powder and beat just until combined. Add the milk and beat on low until combined. Fold in the pecans and apples, then gently fold in the berries just until they are incorporated.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a spoonful of rolled oats.

Place in the center of the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, until the muffins spring back when pressed gently in the center and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for approximately 10 minutes in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
