Apricot Pecan Muffins

Serves: 6

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend was very busy, but very exciting! Saturday I was given the opportunity to be part of a yoga DVD taping at Power Yoga of Cape Cod. Jill, the owner of the studio, shot her first video which will be released for purchase in about 2 months! It was an amazing time! The sequence was designed for anyone from beginners to the advanced! I felt so honored to be part of this exciting time for Jill! Once it has been released, I will be sure to let you know! :)

Sunday, I spent the afternoon helping my grandmother in the garden. We planted kale, tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini and a whole bunch of flowers! I can’t wait until I come back here in a few weeks to see how much they have grown! To cap off the weekend….I lost my voice! haha I don’t know if it is all of the pollen or if I have some sort of bug because other than my throat, I feel 100% fine! It’s probably a blessing in disguise for both my grandmother and the boyfriend….they don’t have to listen to me talk so much! ?

It has been quite a long time since I have shared a muffin recipe! This delicious one has been sitting in the archives just waiting to be shared!! As you know, muffins are one of my favorite things to make because they are packed with nutrition, flavor and make the perfect portioned size snack on the go! Looking at this recipe right now is making me question, why I have been slacking on my muffin making lately! I hope you enjoy this recipe! :)
