These pumpkin nut muffins have very little oil, but lots of pumpkin flavor. The pecans add a little crunch in every bite that I just love! Enjoy them with some hot tea or a cup of pumpkin spiced latte!

This is basically a variation of my Pumpkin Bread with Pepitas, if you prefer to make these into a Pumpkin Nut Bread, the baking time will be 50 to 55 minutes. Either way, these will surely fill your house with the most incredible Autumn aromas. I love to have one of these for breakfast or as a snack. You can also freeze these and reheat them in the microwave.

And coincidentally, these are dairy-free for those with a milk intolerance. Not sure if they can be made gluten-free, but I think I’ll test it out soon with a GF flour and see. If anyone has a favorite GF mix, feel free to comment, I heard Williams Sonoma’s GF mix is really good.

  1. Thoughts on using coconut oil in place of Vegetable oil? I have had pumpkin muffins with coconut oil and really like the flavor. Just not sure on “conversion”. Thanks!

  2. I can only find pumpkin purée in the fall here in my hometown.  I had several cans on hand and this is my new go-to snack recipe.  They are delicious!  I didn’t have pecans on hand so I used walnut.  They’re very moist and not heavy at all.  I made these and bagels today and I’m excited about both.  

  3. Moist and delicious! Not too sweet. Placed a whole pecan half on the top prior to baking. They looked perfect! Brought to share with my peers at work.

  4. What would points be for Green?

  5. Great, tasty, moist muffins! I must admit that I replaced the 2 egg whites with a single whole egg – which does not affect the WW Freestyle points. I made the muffins prettier by placing a large pecan piece on the top of each muffin before baking. Will definitely make these again!

  6. Excellent!

  7. Excellent recipe! Muffins came out fluffy and flavorful. I used 2 whole eggs (being lazy) and the entire can of pumpkin. 🎃

  8. Hi Gina! Did you end up trying the GF? If yes, any different ratios? Thank you!

  9. Can I add protein powder to these, if so how much?

  10. Do you know what the Freestyle points would be for these?
