Gooseberry Patch’s Review and Recipe 5: Pecan Pie Muffins


Okay, I know you may be tired of hearing this but ANOTHER WINNING RECIPE from Gooseberry Patch’s Quick & Easy Autumn!   Seriously delicious.  Seriously quick (and easy).  And super easy to convert to gluten free! I switched up the size tin it called for and used a mini muffin tin.  And they are so rich that two mini muffins was just right for me with my morning coffee.


Pecan Pie Muffins

Regular or Gluten Free

  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (just substitute your favorite gluten free all purpose flour)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil melted and cooled slightly

Mix pecans, brown sugar and flour in a large bowl; make a well in the center and set aside.

ppmuffins1aIn a separate bowl, beat eggs just until foam appears.  Stir in butter or oil.  Add to pecan mixture, stir just until moistened. Spoon batter into muffin cups greased only on the bottom, filling about 2/3 full.*

ppmuffins1b Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until golden**.


Promptly remove from muffin tin.  Cool on a wire rack.  Makes 9 ***


In my gluten free version I also added a 1/2 cup chopped dates – a great addition!

* I used a mini muffin tin and lined it with paper muffin cups

** I reduced the baking time to 18 minutes

*** Made 30 mini muffins

I fixed the girls a little box to take to school with them today.  Yes, school is actually college 🙂 Putting the rest in the freezer for snacks later on!
