Apple Nut Sticky Buns

It's September, September means the return of my beloved book club meetings! Hallelujah! Coffee, chat, books and treats. What could be better? Our first book of the year is The Five Love Languages for Children. Interesting read, not sure I subscribe to the theory 100% but I definitely see how my kids respond differently to different expressons of love. But I digress, let's talk about the most important part of book club... the treats!

I'm usually the baker in the group (they're my guinea pigs) and I like to bring something new every week. I was checking out lifemadedelicious.ca the day before our first meeting and I saw these Apple Walnut Sticky Buns and I knew I had to try them! I substituted pecans for the walnuts because that's what I had in my baking pantry.

The ladies loved them and they were really quick and easy which was nice because I don't have a lot of time in the morning to bake while getting 4 kids ready and out the door for school. These would be a great lazy Sunday breakfast too.

3/4 cup (175 mL) chopped walnuts or pecans
