Looking for a succulent sweet treat to spice up your morning tea? Or how about a yummy snack for the kids when they get home from school? This recipe for Pecan Pie Mini Muffins might do the trick. When it comes to baking them, they’re super easy and only require a few ingredients – you won’t have to spend a lot at the grocery store. You might even want to serve them for dessert – it only takes a few of these sweet little babies to finish off a perfectly delectable meal.

This sweet mini pecan muffin recipe can give you that extra zip of energy just when you need it most. When it comes to pecans, they are a great source of protein and do contain a lot of healthy nutrients – for example, they are very high in iron and calcium and high in manganese, vitamin A, and dietary fiber. Mind you, these pecan muffins do contain a lot of brown sugar, so you might want to go for a long walk or a workout after you indulge – and be sure to brush your teeth soon after eating them. One thing you’ll really want to pay attention to while baking this recipe is the preparation of your muffin tin beforehand. This muffin recipe tends to stick a bit, simply because it contains so much sugar. So you’ll want to grease your muffin tray well – using coconut oil or another high burning point oil, then lightly dust with flour so your batter will not stick. Once you take them out of the oven, you’ll want to let them cool completely before removing them from the pan. That way, they’ll have a chance to firm up first.
