Pumpkin Oat Muffins with Streusel Topping

My new favorite muffin recipe! These are incredibly moist, tender, and flavorful with just the right amount of sweetness.
Adapted fromTasteofhome.com

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (I use 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup all purpose flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (lightly packed so I use less)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats

Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon soft butter

Instructions

  • Step 1 Pre-heat oven to 375-F. Grease 12 muffin cups or use liners.
  • Step 2 In bowl 1, whisk:
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Step 3 In bowl 2, whisk:
    • 1 large egg
    • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (barely packed so I use less)
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup neutral oil
    • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • Step 4 Combine the two bowls and mix until just combined.
  • Step 5 Streusel topping: In a small bowl, mix the following ingredients until well incorporated:
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon soft butter
  • Step 6 Pour level 1/4 cup into each muffin cup (I use a standard ice cream scooper) and sprinkle 1 heaping teaspoon of topping onto each muffin.
  • Step 7 Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (or with just a few crumbs attached). Cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan. Place on rack to cool further or enjoy warm.

Fill 1/4 cup into each muffin cup (I was only able to get 10 muffins out of this recipe).

Notes

*The streusel topping recipe above makes more than I feel is needed for the recipe. Below is the amount I prefer, but sometimes I use the full recipe and load the toppings on heavier. 3 tbsp brown sugar 3 tbsp old-fashioned rolled oats 1.5 tbsp flour ¼ tsp cinnamon 2 tsp soft butter
