Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

I’m back to having too many bananas and making new foods. Haha! But it’s all good because this one is delicious. I made them two different ways and I loved them both. So you’ll have to decide for yourself or try your own way! There are lots of options here. Anything can happen with the base recipe for these banana muffins. So here’s what I tried today (and super loved)!

You can try other mix-ins here. Raisins, walnuts, dried fruit (cranberries or cherries would be great!), fresh fruit (apple, strawberry, cherry), etc. You can even sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar if you’d like or add some chocolate chips (like I did – see below). Mmm! Lots and lots of options with these babies. Let me know what you try!
