Millet Muffins with Honey-Pecan Butter

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke and Jan Gautro

Look for millet, a round, pale yellow grain, in health-food stores or in the organic sections of large supermarkets. If you don't have a spice grinder, pulse the millet in a mini food processor or blender, or lightly crush with a mortar and pestle. If using paper muffin cup liners, coat with cooking spray before filling with batter. Make the muffins up to 2 days ahead, the butter up to 5 days in advance.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 muffin and 1 teaspoon butter)
