  • 2 tablespoons Truvia
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (3 calories)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (6 calories)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients for muffin.
  3. Once dry ingredients have been well mixed, add in wet ingredients for muffin one after the other.
  4. After your batter has been mixed, pour it into an individual-sized cake tin (non-stick preferably).
  5. Bake your muffin for approximately 10 - 15 minutes, or until the top of your muffin is golden and stiff to the touch.
  6. While your muffin is baking, mix together your ingredients for your caramel (excluding pecans).
  7. In a small, non-stick pot, cook your ingredients on the stove over medium-heat.
  8. Stir mixture continuously until it begins to thicken, turning golden brown.
  9. After several minutes, your mixture should be thick like caramel.
  10. Turn off stove and allow your caramel to sit and thicken.
  11. Once your muffin has finished baking, remove it from the oven.
  12. Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with pecans.
