My wife likes a little “crunch” with her muffins so on one occasion I decided to add some chopped walnuts. If you decide to add nuts to this recipe, I would suggest no more than 1/4 cup of coarsely chopped nuts, adding them to the batter on the very last step listed below.

Just like every other muffin recipe on the planet, this one calls for basically all the same ingredients except it is made with brown sugar instead of white sugar.

To add even more sweetness to these delicious muffins, I like to sprinkle a bit of sifter brown sugar as soon as the muffins come out of the oven. You want them to be warm so it slightly melts some of the brown sugar.
