Easy Pecan Pie Muffins


If you like pecan pie, then you’ll love this twist on the classic. One online reviewer claims that this muffin recipe is, “So simple, easy and yummy! Perfect for a busy Mom! I toss a few of these in the diaper bag before I do my running around and I have a nice little energy packed bite when I need it. Definitely a hit.”



These are so good and sooo easy. The brown sugar really shines through. I made regular size muffins and got 8 so will certainly double next time. Mine were a little too “crusty” on the outside (baked for 15 min) so maybe a minute or two less next time. So yummy with my morning eggs!

This is an amazing recipe. My muffins came out perfect. I use unsalted butter so I added 1/2 tsp salt. I also added 1 tsp vanilla extract. No issue with sticking just used cooking spray. Only baked for 18 minutes until tooth pick came out clean. My husband loved them. Will definitely make again.
