Ingredients
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup currants

  • 1 cup lowfat (1%) milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup granola
Method

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil muffin liners.

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and allspice in a medium bowl. Stir in pecans, currants and apple. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil and maple syrup. Add milk mixure to flour; stir just until ingredients are combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle granola on top of each muffin.

Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
