Pecan Pie Muffins

SOME OF THE HELPFULL REVIEWS ABOUT THESE RECIPE
“It’s hard to believe there are only five ingredients in these wonderful little muffins! The brown sugar makes them taste like pecan pie.”

I love these muffins! I wound up selling products for a company based out of Texas because I fell in love with the pecan pie muffin mix they had. I was so excited to find a recipe for these wonderful little gems. I only put about 1/2 cup of pecans in mine and I like them pretty gooey so I bake them at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes. They do tend to stick. I use a nonstick mini muffin pan and spray it very well. Baker’s joy works better than anything else. I wouldn’t recommend using the paper muffin liners. The muffins stick to them like glue.

I have found that the “key” to these muffins is mini muffin tins — the regular size ones just don’t work, and Baker’s Joy spray. Also, I fill mine with just 1 tbsp. of filling, and bake only 17 minutes. Mine are always a hit, in fact, I am enjoying some right now. I love the jar gift idea — I am going to try that one next Christmas.

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.”

Pecan Pie Muffins are one of my absolute favorite, go to recipes I used to use for clients during the holidays. Every year I’d give my clients holiday gifts or birthday gifts and one of my go to’s was this recipe. Why? Because it is the kind of recipe NO ONE would guess is so easy to make.
