Pecan Pie Muffins
Originally, I found this Pecan Pie Muffin recipe on a meme on Facebook. It’s one of those recipes where I knew as soon as I saw it I had to try it.
Hannah said the recipe was super simple to whip up. It only took a few minutes to pop the muffin tin in the oven! 15 minutes later the muffins were cooling on the counter.
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups chopped pecans
- 2/3 cups butter, softened
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 12 whole pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease muffin tins well. If you don't these muffins will stick.
- In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, and chopped pecans.
- In another bowl, beat the butter and eggs together.
- Stir in dry ingredients just until combined. Don't over mix.
- Spoon batter into muffin tins until about 2/3 full.
- Top with a whole pecan piece.
- Bake for 15 - 17 minutes for regular size muffins and for about 13 minutes for mini muffins.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool for a bit. Run a knife around the edges of each muffin to release from muffin tin.
I hope you enjoy this Pecan Pie Muffin recipe. These are perfect breakfast or a snack. Serve them alongside a luncheon menu or give them as gifts during the holidays. So easy to make and if you love pecan pie, you’ll these Pecan Pie Muffins!!
