Jumbo-Size PECAN CRUMBLE MUFFINS (w/ no sugar)

by - January 15, 2018

Everybody loves a good muffin; especially the kind you can shove your whole face into. This jumbo pecan-crumble muffin will please both your sweet tooth and your love for large, crumbly-sweet desserts. It's packed with a homey-buttery flavor and the subtly crunchy-sweet taste of pecans (without the sugar!). Paired with milk on a winter night, or even some late-season eggnog, this muffin is a winner.

Sealed in an airtight container, they'll stay good for over a week! Lotsa muffin fun for the whole family. They would also be fantastic with some cream cheese, if you like drizzled toppings or even fillings.

I always use all Organic ingredients; and it's no different with these jumbo muffins. One of the funny things about this was that the top came out splotched, because I had missed some spots with the crumbled topping. Then, you know what? I kinda liked it.

  1. THESE LOOK SO GOOD. I’m definitely more of a muffin person!!! I also loved that you mentioned use organic ingredients— my parents don’t usually get organic food because it’s so expensive, but it’s usually much healthier for you, and it’s always been a goal of mine to eat organic as much as I could when I become an adult, but that’s far away from now.

    P.S. OH MY SHISH KEBABS this post reminded me it’s Muffin Wednesday at school so I need to grab some change xD

    1. Thank you Abigail! Yep, my Mom's a holistic nutritionist -- so adding healthy alternatives and staying organic is a must. It's true that sometimes organic food can be pricey; but I have to say that shopping with her since I was little has definitely taught me that coupon-clicking and clearance shopping adds up! Places like Trader Joes will give you great deals on top-of-the-line Organics ;)

  2. These look yummy! I've been trying to eat healthier this year, but, well... Let's just say that I made cupcakes this afternoon. xD My favorite type of muffin are chocolate muffins with chocolate chips. And when it comes to muffins vs. cupcakes I am neutral. I love them equally in their own muffiny cupcakey ways!

    1. Thanks you, Micaiah! Haha...well, cupcakes can be healthier, right? Maybe with some non-sugary frosting and more whole ingredients + organics (but then it would be a muffin with frosting, I suppose)
      Ohh, that sounds like pure chocolate happiness. Yes; I'm the same way!


Thank you for your lovely comments --- I'll respond soon!
