This is another easy recipe for deliciously moist muffins, laced with pecans and maple syrup.

I try and create recipes that make smaller quantities, this recipe only makes 6 muffins but can easily be doubled to make 12.

I love using parchment paper as opposed to muffin cases, I prefer the look of it and the ease of it, simply cut squares out of paper and fold into the muffin tin, it may be fiddly at first but once you’ve got the hang of it means you have one less thing to worry about.
