This recipe for Banana Pecan Muffins is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

We have an incredible giveaway below and would love if you would take a moment to read about it and the prizes you can win!
One of my favorite kinds of homemade bread is banana bread. My daughter just made a new batch last night. However, now that I have tasted this super easy Banana Pecan Muffin recipe, I may never want just plain old banana bread again!
What sets these muffins over the top are the pecans I used from Millican Pecan. This was my first introduction to them, and I am totally sold from here on out about their product.
They have all kinds of products and we have been experimenting with a few and have more recipes to share in the coming weeks that feature pecans.
But for now, let me tell you about these amazing Banana Pecan Muffins.
How To Make Banana Pecan Muffins
The inside of the muffin is full of delicious banana and pecan flavor. They are super moist. When they cook up, the tops puff up and look great. The added extra pecans to the top really set it off and make them look amazing.
The flavor combo of pecans and bananas pair so well together.
These Banana Pecan Muffins are great for breakfast or as a snack and can be ready in no time. These muffins are not only moist and delicious and bursting with flavor, but they are also so easy to make.
