Apple Nut Muffins - Recipe

I whipped up this recipe over the weekend and they were really good.

The recipe called for jumbo muffin tins, I thought I had them but apparently my jumbo tins were not.

They bubbled all over the place and well, you can say we had a tiny smidge of a fire in the oven from the batter hitting the coil.

Eek.. but I have to say all turned out just fine and the muffins were a hit!

I would not fill up the muffin tins half way with the batter, I think you can see why in my picture.

The recipe is from Recipezaar, is very easy to make and they make a perfect breakfast treat.

The original recipe called for a jumbo muffin tin, I would honestly use a small muffin tin.
