They are tender and moist and filled with healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour, flax, yogurt, pumpkin, pecans and more!!

    I’m going to make these today, they look great. But um…there aren’t any pecans in the recipe. I don’t mind, but it seems odd since they’re called Pumpkin Pecan Muffins!
