Baklava... in a muffin?!? Yes, that's right, we went there! And what a great way to transform this decadent dessert into a great muffin. While making this muffin, memories from our trip to Greece last year came flowing back. I was the only one on our trip that actually liked the baklava. I guess I am a bit more adventurous in trying new foods and I loved the mixture of spice, nuts, pastry, and sticky syrup. I never would have thought to try a muffin version but it really works!
