I found this recipe in my copy of Taste of Home's Bread Bonanza Cookbook Vol. 6 2003 and make them often in the fall and winter months. Delicious!
I am always looking for ways to make recipes healthier. In this recipe I used equal parts whole wheat, all purpose, and whole grain barley flour, and added a bit of wheat germ. I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup and used 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt (subbed for sour cream) for the muffin, and added maple flavouring after reading other reviews. For the topping I swapped out white sugar for brown. I got 18 medium sized muffins.
The result is a delicious and tender muffin which is easy to prepare. With the changes I made I would say this is a very versatile muffin recipe and I am sure I will make it again.
These muffins are some of the best I've ever had. They really do taste like pancakes. My son and husband loved them! Instead of making 16 muffins as the recipe calls for, I made 8 jumbo muffins by filling 8 muffin cups to the brim with batter (a trick I learned from a baking blog I follow). They were big and beautiful, like something you'd see in a bakery window! Made the house smell wonderful! I did not add butter to the topping as I already had a sugar/cinnamon mixture on hand, and was pressed for time. I did throw some chopped walnuts into the sugar mix. Wonderful recipe ... delicious!
These muffins were a huge hit with my family. They were so full of maple walnut flavor, were moist and delicious. They made the whole house smell good. I did substitute the butter with coconut oil which added a subtle coconut flavor, and the vanilla extract with maple extract. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will be making these often!
