  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

  2. Generously grease a muffin tin.
  3. Combine the first nine ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well blended.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin tins about 3/4 full. (Helpful hint: spray your spoon with nonstick spray before beginning to scoop the batter so it slides off the spoon easily!)
