These mini-muffins are extra sweet with white chocolate and pecans. For a change of flavor, use plain chocolate or replace the pecans with your favorite nut.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Lightly grease and flour three trays of 12 mini-muffin pans.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl. Stir in chocolate and nuts. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and quickly fold into flour mixture.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared mini-muffin pans. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden and risen. Cool muffins in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

*Star ingredient: Pecans are slightly sweeter than walnuts and make a good substitute for them in recipes. Both types of nuts contain polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein and fiber.
