Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are heavenly! These fantastic muffins explode with pumpkin flavor. They include pumpkin pie spice, raisins and oatmeal along with a streusel topping. They’re hearty as well as scrumptious! This also makes a big batch of muffins – 24 total, so it’s a terrific recipe for company and holidays.
I was asked to make some breakfast “stuff” for a Mother-Daughter Tea at our church back in May. I decided to make up several different kinds of muffins since I knew so many others were making breakfast casseroles. I tossed together Maple Pecan Pie Muffins, Maple Apple Pie Muffins and these wonderful muffins. When I handed over all the goodies for the breakfast, the gal’s eyes lit up saying she couldn’t wait to try these!
Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are really something to write home about. These muffins have great texture, plus the streusel topping puts them over-the-top! They’re rich, sweet and a perfect brunch idea any time of the year. Granted, most people want to bake pumpkin treats in the fall, but it’s so easy to purchase canned pumpkin any time of the year nowadays (unlike 30 or 40 years ago), that you can make these luscious muffins all-year-round. Yay!
Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are totally delectable!
While these muffins are on the heartier side, they’re also good and sweet. 🙂
My husband loved how these muffins turned out.
The muffins have oatmeal in the muffin as well as in the streusel topping.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the muffins.
Place UNBLEACHED flour in a mixing bowl (bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, oatmeal, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Stir ingredients well to combine; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, place pumpkin, eggs, raisins, applesauce and oil.
Add vanilla extract.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add liquid mixture to dry mixture.
Stir until just moistened. Don’t over-mix the batter.
Line two 12-tin muffin pans with paper liners. Spray each well with cooking spray. Spoon the pumpkin batter into each muffin tin almost to the top.
I used these ingredients for the streusel topping.
Soften butter. Add oatmeal, unbleached flour and brown sugar.
Stir well to combine.
Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over top of the 24 muffin tins. Press lightly with finger tips so streusel topping will adhere slightly to the muffins.
Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. Bake about 15-19 minutes longer, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool muffins. Gently remove with a table knife from muffin tin and place muffins on cooling racks.
These Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are filled with raisins!
These muffins are great to take to potlucks or holiday breakfasts because they make a lot.
Every bite will have you drooling!
While anything pumpkin is great for fall baking, the ingredients are easily accessible all year round.
Here’s the recipe.
