It is that pumpkin time of year …. they fill the house with a fabulous aroma when roasting them to make into magical scones, muffins and pie. This pumpkin streusel muffin is so good you will be happy it makes such a large batch!
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter, softened
6 tablespoons rolled oats
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans (lightly toasted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup oats, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
Whisk pumpkin puree, 1 cup brown sugar, white sugar, vegetable oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a separate large bowl. Stir flour mixture into pumpkin mixture; mix well.
Combine dry ingredients for topping, then crumble in softened butter, mixing until it resembles crumbs.
Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle each muffin with streusel topping.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.
