Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

If you don’t know by now, you soon will soon learn that I have a slight obsession with muffins, especially for breakfast. I am very particular about my muffins (a good blueberry bran is my favorite). The other day, I decided to make some pumpkin muffins since October is pumpkin month in our house. I found a great recipe from Sara on simply stardust. I modified the recipe a bit because I love the combination of pecans and pumpkin. These are not really breakfast muffins but they make a delicious snack. Here is my slightly modified version of Sara’s recipe. Thank you Sara, these are so yummy.


1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Give it a couple of good stirs but don’t over mix. Spoon the batter into your muffin pans and bake them for about 20 minutes. Check with a toothpick or a cake poker to see that if they are done. My muffins took about 22 minutes to be exact. Nothing like pecan pumpkin muffins to celebrate fall!
