Java Muffins Recipe

If you love your morning java like I do, get a double dose by paring this crunchy pecan-topped muffin with your favorite hot cup of Joe. They travel well and are ideal to take to work - for that mid-morning coffee break, of course. —Zainab Ahmed, Mountlake Terrace, Washington

"Wonderful! These moist muffins are delicious for breakfast, snack, or coffee break. I have even made them substituting the whole wheat flour for buckwheat and the all-purpose for gluten free flour blend."
