You can, of course, substitute another nut if you like. But you know I’ve got an abiding love for pecans. Just be sure to substitute by volume, as the weights of different nuts can vary. Also, I’m a big, big fan of Penzey’s cinnamons, especially their Ceylon cinnamon. If you have the chance, do yourself a favor and give them a try.
With their amazing flavor and texture, these Cinnamon Pecan Muffins may very well be my perfect muffin. I’ll happily enjoy one of these muffins any time of year, but I especially crave them in fall. Pair then with your favorite warm beverage for a perfectly indulgent treat.
