    Sharon123's Note:

    This recipe came from Trisha Yearwood, who married Garth Brooks and wrote a cookbook called Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma kitchen with a forward by Garth Brooks himself! Gotta try these! :) Be sure to use paper liners in the muffin tins and spray them with nonstick spray; otherwise, they will crumble when you peel off the liners. This recipe also makes great mini muffins; just shorten the baking time by 5 minutes. You might also try using oat flour instead of all purpose for a healthier muffin.

      Yumm Yumm! What a great satisfying breakfast we had. We love the sweet nuttiness of these muffins and they are healthier than other muffins too!

      These muffins don't really look like anything special but just wait until you taste them. They are fantastic!! It really does taste like a pecan pie. It is a very moist muffin. Mine took about 27 minutes to bake. I definitely recommend this recipe.
