Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs; mix well. Beat in applesauce.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk buttermilk, coffee, coffee granules and vanilla until granules are dissolved; gradually add to butter mixture.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the butter mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in 1/4 cup of the pecans.
  4. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill three-fourths full. Sprinkle with remaining pecans.
  5. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
