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 |
