Easy and yummy, I was aprehensive about the lack of chemical leveners, but was pleased with the results. Nice crust and a slightly chewy texture make these special. I toasted the nuts before grinding and used dark brown sugar. Next time I''ll try light brown sugar as I thought the molassas flavor was a bit too strong with the dark brown. -- update. Tried the light brown sugar. Taste was a bit more rounded with less molassas. Also baked another batch in mini muffin tins without any foil liners -- 400 degrees f, 15 mins. The nice crust is now all around and no more messy liners to unwrap

These were excellent! I coarsely ground the pecans with the brown sugar before starting up the batter, and the muffins were light and delicious!

I made this recipe this morning for my husband and he loved it! I asked him if he could tell me if the muffins reminded him of anything he had had before and he immediately said "Pecan Pie"! He has always loved pecan pie, and these muffins are excellent! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing! :)

These are so good. So quick, so easy. I asked my fiance to whip them up while I took a shower and when I got out there was a delightful smell filling the apartment and the finished product was delicious!

I'm new here and this is the first recipe I've tried... All I can say is you'd better make a double batch because these tasty little things go quick... And so easy to make...

These were great but, I think that next time I will more finely ground the pecans though.

WOW! These muffins are scrumptious. How can anything so simple to make taste so delicious. My husband's favorite food is pecan pie and he raved about these muffins. I will be making these often.

These are fabulous and super easy! I had to take half the batch to my kids' daycare just to keep me from eating them all myself!

Wow are these little suckers delicious! I used a mini muffin pan like Steve Grinavec advised and baked at 385 about 12 minutes. I served them at a lunch buffet and soon realized I should have made at least a double batch. They really do have the taste and texture of little pecan pies and they are sooo easy to make.
