Paleo Pecan Pie Muffins

I’m always on the lookout for healthy bakes to make and share. I came across Paleo Pecan Pie Muffins recipe in a new book I purchased, Down South Paleo, by Jennifer Robbins. Great recipes and I want to try them all!

For a bake, I was intrigued with this recipe, not only do I love pecan pie, but the batter was made in the blender with no flour or sugar! The muffins are topped with delicious honey coated pecan pieces with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

The main components are eggs and pecans, blended together to make a nice batter. So I gave it a try and I was impressed with the results. I only had 2 eggs, so I substituted a 1/3 cup of unsweetened organic applesauce, but would make again with 4 eggs to be true to the recipe.

Below is the recipe for you to enjoy and give a try. It only took me about 10 minutes or less to make the batter. I actually finished before the oven finished preheating! Clean-up was a snap, just rinsed the blender and placed in the dishwasher, can’t beat it!

Enjoy the bake!
