White Chocolate and Pecan Pumpkin Muffins

My kids had a day off of school for parent/teacher conferences so we decided to make some pumpkin muffins. They wanted to add white chocolate and I wanted to add pecans. They were very simple and fun to make and tasted wonderful! White chocolate and pumpkin go so well together! They gobbled up a couple for an afternoon snack, had another one for dessert after dinner and finished them off with breakfast the following day. Needless to say – they were a HUGE hit!

White Chocolate and Pecan Pumpkin Muffins:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray.

Mix the flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl.

In a large bowl combine the melted butter, eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla together. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until just incorporated. Add the white chocolate chips (leaving a few to sprinkle on top of the muffins) and the pecan pieces and mix.

Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Sprinkle each muffin top with a few white chocolate chips, then slightly push them into the batter.

Place into the oven and bake for 15 -17 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack then slather with butter and serve. Enjoy.
