Yesterday was my younger daughter Yanah’s birthday. For breakfast, I made pecan pie muffins, her favorite. I still cannot believe she is 13 and taller than me. My older one came to spend the weekend with us and I was so blessed to have both of my babies with me.
These muffins were delicious and simple to make. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
Pecan Pie muffin
1 cup chopped pecan
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 1/3 sticks butter melted
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the muffin paper liners in the muffin cups and spray with nonstick cooking spray
In a large bowl, combine the pecans, sugar and the flour.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs until foamy. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until moistened.
Spoon the batter into the cups, filling each almost full. Bake until a knife comes out clean when inserted in a muffin, about 20 minutes.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my little one, and I am blessed to have an extra hour this weekend to sleep.
I never thought about making pecan pie into muffins before! I bet these are delicious. I hope your daughter had a wonderful birthday!
She did, Stephanie, and she enjoyed her muffins as well.
Happy birthday, Yanah! I’m so glad you were able to celebrate with both of your kids- there really is nothing better. Though I’m intimated by even the most simple recipe when it comes to baking, these muffins look too tasty and too easy to pass up!
Thank you, Lois, I don’t bake often, whenever I do so, it’s simple and mostly delicious.
I suddenly just got so hungry. yum. I hope your daughter had the best birthday ever.
She did, April, thank you!
Happy birthday Yanah! My parents always made birthday mornings super special and that is a tradition I enjoyed passing on to my daughter last year for her first birthday. The recipe looks so yummy and I cant wait to try it!
Thank you, Patricia, birthday breakfast makes the day special!
I love pecan pie so I would totally try to make these! I love making muffins!
Hope you like them, Neely!
I would never have thought about translating pecan pie into muffins, what a great idea! I’m betting it is less time consuming than making pie!
You bet right, Jessica!
It so wonderful to celebrate birthdays together. Delicious food makes it even better! These muffins look amazing. I love pecans!
Just like you, Christa, we all love pecans!
Aw happy birthday to her! Those muffins look amazing! They look pretty simple to make to!

Oh I have bought pecan muffins but never made them myself. Sounds like a great treat for a birthday!
It was, Angela!

These sound amazing! My husband’s favorite is pecan pie, so I may a batch of these up this weekend!
Pecans are so delicious, and they are so good in the muffins.
Ooo my mouth is literally watering right now. I love the flavouring of the muffin and they look super scrummy xx
They were yummy, Melanie!
If that tastes as good as it looks I am going to be in a lot of trouble. Wow. Pecan pie muffins huh? So delicious. I imagine incredible rich as well.
They are rich and delicious, David!
These are such a good idea. My family loves pecan pie and these muffins would be perfect for them to take for lunches. Thanks for the recipe!
I never thought to make a pie into a muffin. That’s genius! Now I’m wondering what other pies I’d like to try this with.
Just let your imagination takes the lead, Ola, it’s such a pleasure to create new recipes!
This is such a simple recipe but they look so tasty! I’ll have to give these a try for my kids, I think they would go down well with them 🙂
They would, Lindsay!
I am sure these taste as yummy as it looks. Going to try this recipe during the weekend.
You will love them, Karen.
