I currently have a super picky 3 year old who is surviving solely on cheese and freeze-dried fruits. Occasionally, he will eat a cheese quesadilla or chicken or ham. If I'm really lucky, he'll eat pancakes or muffins. Mason LOVES these muffins and he ate most of the batch by himself this go-around. This recipe is not necessarily complicated, but you do move around some mixtures a little bit, so it's best to read the directions a couple times through before you start making it. The batter is also very thick, but don't worry, it's supposed to be that way. These muffins are buttery and full of lots of cinnamon sugar goodness with pecans all throughout them.

  11. Using a scoop, divide batter between 12 lined muffin cups in a muffin tin.
  12. Top each muffin with reserved pecan mixture, gently pressing into batter.
  13. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
