Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins and Free Fall Coloring Pages

We are looking forward to a little bit of beautiful snow tomorrow and seasonal temperatures, which is exciting when I’ve been trying to enjoy “fall” baking and cooking in very unseasonal weather. There is an excited baker over here! Pumpkin streusel muffins are in the oven and I’m digging up free fall coloring pages for my littles. I’m cramming in all of my pumpkin baking before the whole season switches from pumpkin spice to peppermint and chocolate. Or has that already happened?

I’m still enjoying the pumpkin spice season… before pulling out the gingerbread and eggnog, which is very soon. Please do enjoy baking my very moist and yummy pumpkin streusel muffins in the spirit of enjoying a little bit of fall while the Christmas decorations go up around us!

Free Fall Coloring Pages

A side note before I share my recipe – My 2-year-old loves coloring every day, and I have found some great sources for cute, free fall printable coloring pages. Note: I didn’t browse all of the content of these sites, and do not necessarily recommend them outside of the coloring resources they provide.

And we love Charlie Brown over here, so these were a fun find. There are coloring pages for a few seasons here, including Christmas, so fun! – SuperColoring.com Peanuts Holiday Coloring Pages

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins with Maple Glaze

I love these muffins. They are so wonderfully moist, and they keep very well. The maple glaze is totally optional, they are super delicious without the glaze. But if you are looking for a little extra decadence on top of a showy breakfast, then, by all means, drizzle some on top of each lovely muffin. Also, I didn’t use muffin tin liners. Just grease a non-stick muffin pan well before filling.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour the pumpkin mixture in the middle. Stir with a spoon just until the wet and the dry are incorporated. Don’t beat the batter or over-mix. Let the batter sit while you make the crumb topping.

Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full with batter and sprinkle each with about 1 1/2 tbsp. of the crumb mixture. Press the crumb mixture into the batter with your fingers just a tiny bit. Don’t push the crumbs down into the batter, just enough to help them stick to the top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If you are planning to make the maple glaze, make it while the muffins are baking.

Cool muffins on a wire rack. Drizzle with maple glaze if desired. Serve immediately with hot coffee, or save for breakfast tomorrow. But you won’t be able to wait until then to taste one!

  1. Very good but as much as I hate it when people change the recipes I did change a little. I didn’t have any unbleached flour so I added 1 cup of all purpose flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Also 1 1/2 t baking powder. Also added 1/2 cup of black walnuts and left off the glaze. The spices in these are great and not too overpowering. YUM!!!
