- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep the muffin tin by adding parchment paper muffin cups (regular or mini).
- Cream the wet ingredients and sugar together with a hand mixer, in a food processor, or by hand.
- Add the dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips and pecans. Mix until incorporated.
- Fold in (or pulse in if using a food processor) the pecans and optional chocolate chips.
- Divide evenly between 24 mini muffin cups or 12 regular muffin cups.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes for the mini muffins, 15 to 17 minutes for the regular muffins. When done a toothpick inserted should come out clean and the tops should be bouncy.
- Let cool for 5 minutes and then enjoy!
