Pecan Pie Muffins!
There are two kinds of pies that I crave as it gets closer to fall. Sweet potato pie and pecan pie!
But why just eat them in the form of pie?!
Instead of sweet potato pie, why not have Sweet Potato Pie Mashed Potatoes! And instead of pecan pie, why not have Pecan Pie Muffins!
Who says you can’t have sweet potato pie as a thanksgiving side dish?! And why can’t we have pecan pie for breakfast?!
Thanks to my Pecan Pie Muffins you now can!
These muffins are my favorite muffins! I’ve been making them for years from a family recipe and we love them!
But, you know me, I always strive to make something as healthy as possible!
So, instead of making these muffins with regular store bought flour, I grind my own spelt flour. This might sound hard, but it’s not! And it’s sooo much better for you!
If you’d like to learn more about grinding your own flour, then please read my post How To Easily Grind Your Own Flours At Home! It is so simple, so much more nutritious, and tastes so much better!
In addition to grinding my own spelt, I also sweeten these delicious muffins with coconut sugar!
I try to avoid refined sugars in my baking, and coconut sugar is an excellent sweetener to substitute regular sugar!
It makes the most amazing baked goods!
These Pecan Pie Muffins are so moist and sweet, and have the wonderful flavor that you expect from pecan pie!
Add these to your Pinterest fall baking board! You will be so glad that you did!
These muffins will be a recipe that you make again and again throughout the season!
