Extra-virgin olive oil and Greek yogurt give these muffins their excellent moisture; toasted pine nuts add a wonderful nutty flavor.  Slideshow: Breakfast Muffins

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 6-cup muffin pan.

Step 2    

In a small frying pan over medium heat, toast the pine nuts until light golden brown and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3    

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Step 4    

Combine the sugar, olive oil, eggs, and yogurt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until smooth and then add the dry ingredients and pine nuts to the bowl. Gently mix until fully incorporated.

Step 5    

Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared paper cup liners. Scatter the tops with a few toasted pine nuts and gently press them into place. Bake for 20 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the muffins cool briefly in the pan, and then place them on a cooling rack.
