  • Use a triggered ice cream scooper to fill your muffin papers almost all the way up. Bake for about 20 minutes at 375F. The muffins are done when a toothpick Inserted into the center comes out clean.



  • Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don't have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
  • You can totally add chocolate chips to this recipe. I would recommend one cup if that's something you'd like to try. 
  • I love nutmeg in these muffins but you can use just the cinnamon or add your favorites like cardamom, ginger or allspice.
  • You can finish the muffins off with a sprinkle of turbinado sugar and/or some more chopped walnuts on top.
