    As a single I appreciate recipes of this type that I can eat one and freeze the others for later (if I can discipline myself to do so!) Thanks.

      Usually between 1/2 – 2/3 full depending how big you want them. If you go over 2/3 full for any muffin recipe they sometimes pour out over the cup and stick to the pan. 2/3 is the standard amount to allow for raising. If I am fixing them for several young kids, need to stretch them or if they are very rich muffins I will make smaller ones and only fill 1/2 full.

    Absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for this recipe. Definitely going to become a regular here…as soon as I find pecans on a good sale! lol

    I made these Saturday. They are easy and quick to make. My daughter and her youngest son was here Sunday to eat lunch with us. They ate some of them and she wanted the receipe.

    What I like about them is that they`re not too sweet. I love pecan pie, but it is so sweet, just one small bite is all I can eat.

    I made this recipe as our dessert at Thanksgiving time. Didn’t know if my family would like them. Wow! They loved these little pecan pie muffins! They are not to sweet and I made extra and froze a batch. I didn’t need to make pies for Thanksgiving! This recipe is a keeper!

    I made these with 1/2 cup of gluten free flour blend and 1/4 cup or sorghum flour and they came out fantastic! Thank you so much :)

    No one has posted how many this makes. I like to know before I start and since I’m new to baking muffins, can’t guessimate.

    Attending our first Beta meeting on the 13th and was asked to bring the dessert- this sounds great so topped with whipped cream.

    Also looking for a coconut coffee cake recipe- anyone have a idea with glazed icing.

    have a great day

    Just thought I’d share my variation :)
    I used sliced almonds since that is what I had & added a handful of cranberry-raisins.
    I made 12 mini muffins & 2 mini loaves…they’re very yummy! I made them for a friend who just had surgery–glad there’s enough to have a sample, too :)|
    Thanks for the great recipe!

    I tried this recipe as printed & they were flat & didn’t taste very good. I thought maybe it was a misprint & so I used self rising flour next & they were great. My 30 yr old son even liked them & he is very picky.

    this is sorta like the recipe for the infomercial “turbo cooker” (its on you tube now) .. but cathy (the lady cooking) used a think of bisquick, pecans and diet orange soda (i think it was orange) .. and cooked it in the turbo cooker (i bought one of those .. they are awesome) .. and well i did make this once and it was delish .. i am not sure if i used the orange soda or a diet sprite .. and i used more pecans than she did bc it was a dessert i was making and i topped it with cool whip ..
    i have to try this recipe tho .. anything with pecans or walnuts is a fav at our house ..
    thanks for sharing 😀

    Thumbs up for the Pecan Pie Muffin recipe! (I substituted walnuts for the pecans– very tasty.) Instead of using paper liners, I sprayed the tin generously with cooking spray. I ran a knife around the edges of the muffins right after I took them out of the oven, giving each one a little lift with the knife tip to loosen them from the bottom. Great with a mug of tea!

    This looks so easy! I will have to make this. I know this is terrible, but I love pecan pie, and I make one only at Christmas, and usually eat the whole thing by myself! It is my favorite pie, but not one my husband and kids will eat. My parents like it, and sometimes they will eat it as well, if I pull it out to share that is! But now my dad is border line diabetic, and has to stay off sugar. I haven’t tried any sugar free recipes though. I have a FM cookbook that says to use honey, maple syrup and molasses as sweeteners, not white sugar. It could be that the maple syrup would be a good substitute.

      Your a woman after my own heart. I love pecan pie and am the only one who eats it so I make myself a whole one either at Christmas or New Years and eat the whole thing myself. Oh. Yum. You could try the other sweeteners but I’m afraid I have always found the recipes that say they taste like the real thing don’t usually work for me. : ) I guess I have delicate taste buds. : )

    These were FANTASTIC!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I really appreciate that you give us easy recipes with easy to find ingredients that taste great. I certainly hope my husband has your cook book under the tree for me as I requested. If not I will definitely be ordering myself a copy Dec. 26th. Lol.
    I also love reading everyone’s comments, and enjoy how everyone seems like family on this site. I have been very blessed to have found it. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
