Sweet and nutty, these 6-ingredient pecan pie muffins are perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea or kids' lunch box. They are super easy to throw together with just 6 ingredients and freeze well too. They have a muffin texture with a soft gooey center like a mini pecan pie and crisp chewy edges like cookies. When the muffins are completely cooled, place them in a freezer bag and freeze up to 1 month.

  • 60 g Refined spelt flour
  • 200 g Pecans, chopped plus 18 pecan halves for the topping
  • 160 g Unsalted Kerrygold butter, softened plus extra for the pans
  • 200 g Light brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Grease a mini tray with 12 cups and a regular muffin tray with 6 cups generously with butter. You can of course use paper muffin liners instead.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the spelt flour and chopped pecans. In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Stir in dry ingredients just until combined.
  3. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Top each with a pecan half. Bake for about 10-12 minutes for mini muffins and 18-20 minutes for regular size muffins. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin and pop it out. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Looks crunchy, juicy and lovely. My sister just sent me some pecans from USA, I've never had them before here in Europe. PS I think the beauty of your photos would be enhanced if you put just two or three best ones within the post, not over that number, it would sharpen the focus.

I can't believe how easy these are! Definitely going to make a batch this week.

My daughter and I love pecan pie so I'm sure we would devour these little beauties.

Mae Travels 20/1/21 19:46

Pecan pie always seems too rich -- I just want a bite, not a whole slice. These look just as rich but maybe smaller.

be safe... mae at

Pam 20/1/21 20:29

My kids love pecan pie, and I'm sure they'll love this. Making the pie in the muffin pan is a brilliant idea and those flower shape is cute! Love that your recipe uses only fewer ingredients, thanks a ton for the recipe, Angie!

I hope these bites can be done with walnuts instead .....

Ella Mammedov 21/1/21 11:40

They look very appetizing! Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely cook it for my family.

Oh, I would love these! Pecans are my favorite nut and we are lucky they are so easy to find here in the U.S.

Jeff the Chef 21/1/21 17:28

These muffins are so gorgeous! They would make such a nice addition to a brunch spread. I cannot wait to be able to host a brunch again one day.

Ashley@CookNourishBliss 22/1/21 15:17

These would disappear in NO time at our house!!

Marianela Beauty Tips 22/1/21 17:29

So cute and yummy :)

I grew up on a ranch in Texas where we had lots of pecan trees so needless to say I've had my share of pecan pie which I love. Now I can't wait to try your little muffins, they sound perfect.

mjskit 23/1/21 22:42

These are probably the most decadent muffins I've ever seen. They would be extremely dangerous in this house since pecan pie is our most favorite pie. These muffines certainly wouldn't last long I can tell you that.

Heidi | The Frugal Girls 25/1/21 21:52

Your mini muffins are so adorable. They really are the perfect little scrumptious midweek treat idea!

Raymund 26/1/21 22:10

Loving this recipe, the effort to result ratio is so low. I think those candied walnuts would go well on this one too.

Evi Erlinda 27/1/21 04:19

Your muffins look so pretty and tasty, Angie!
I can eat all of them!

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 29/1/21 17:20

I've made Pecan Pie Muffins in the past, but they were really lackluster. They certainly did not look as deliciously beautiful as do yours.

Evi @ greenevi 2/2/21 14:31

What a cool idea to combine pecan pie and muffins!
