Perfect Pecan Pumpkin Muffins!

Brittany is craving pumpkin and since she is the chief cook and baker at my house we are now officially on a pumpkin odyssey! We are hoping that baking with pumpkin will usher in the cool days of fall in southeast Texas. She found a great recipe on skinnytaste.com which she tweaked for our southern pumpkin taste buds and we now have a 
PERFECT pumpkin pecan muffin recipe! 
Brittany added wheat flour, more spices, whole eggs, & vanilla. 
Southern cooks are not known for being minimalist:)
