These muffins are incredibly delicious and only take about 10 to 15 minutes to prepare! You can make them in regular muffin size or as mini muffins. They’re the perfect dessert for a holiday meal.

Ingredients for Pecan Pie Muffins:

  • Light brown sugar: Essential for that classic pecan pie flavor. If you don’t have light brown sugar, dark brown sugar will also work.
  • All-purpose flour: Use ½ cup; this ingredient is irreplaceable.
  • Pecans: Use chopped pecans for the batter and whole pecans for decoration.
  • Unsalted butter: It’s best to pre-cut the butter into small cubes for easier mixing.
  • Eggs: Lightly beat the eggs before mixing them with the other ingredients.

Can I Use Other Types of Nuts?

While pecans are the star of this recipe, you can substitute them with walnuts if you prefer. Walnuts will still provide a similar taste and texture to pecan pie.

How to Make Pecan Pie Muffins

Making the batter for these muffins is quick and simple. The most challenging step is combining all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stirring with a spatula or handheld mixer until everything is well mixed.

After preparing the batter, transfer it to a muffin pan lined with muffin papers. This recipe yields about 10 regular-sized muffins or 18 mini muffins.

Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes. Once baked, cool on a rack for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Tips for the BEST Pecan Pie Muffins

  • Since the batter takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, preheat your oven to 350°F before starting. This way, it’s ready when you are.
  • Use room-temperature ingredients so the butter mixes smoothly.
  • Fill each muffin cup about ⅔ full to prevent overflow during baking.

Can You Freeze Pecan Pie Muffins?

Yes, you can. Place the muffins in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
