  • In a large bowl stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, allspice, and salt. Stir in the apricots. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In a small bowl whisk together the milk, oil, and egg; add all at once to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Sprinkle pecans evenly over top. Bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin cups; serve warm.
