I don’t know about you but, fall is my favorite season. The air starts to get crisp, the leaves start to change, and it’s sweater weather.

These muffins are perfect to enjoy with your PSL or hot apple cider. The best part of these is that you can enjoy them any time of the year. Whenever a pumpkin craving hits, I make these.

Of course, they’re excellent for the fall and holiday season. Read on for the recipe, I hope you like these as much as we do!

Things You Will Need:

Can You Freeze Them?

The muffins are freezer friendly. Just wrap them tightly with plastic wrap and freeze.

Another method to use is to put them in one layer into an airtight resealable bag while removing as much air as possible. After that, you can put it inside another one and freeze for up to 2 months.

Once you are ready to eat, you can leave them at room temperature to defrost or microwave for 30 seconds per muffin. Place the muffin on a paper towel on a plate and microwave.

Want Better Texture?

If you have more time in your hands you can let the batter rest overnight. Rested batter rises better and provides a better crumb and texture.

What Are Some Add-Ins?

You can also add nuts like almonds, pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts. Mix in dried cranberries or cinnamon chips to the batter. The result is totally delicious too!

  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup of oil
  • 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

Streusel Topping

  • ½ cup of flour
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup of butter, cold and diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with muffin cups and set aside.
  2. Prepare the streusel topping. In a bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Work in the butter, mixing until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Cover and place in the fridge.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the muffins. In a small bowl beat the pumpkin puree with the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin pie spice. Add half the flour and beat until evenly incorporated. Pour the milk and mix to combine.
  4. Finish adding the remaining flour and baking powder and mixing until just combined.
  5. Divide the batter between the muffins cups and top with around two teaspoons of streusel topping.
  6. Take to the oven and bake for 22 minutes or until done.
  7. Cool for 15 minutes or enjoy warm.


As mentioned, you can add nuts of all kinds, dried cranberries, and for some crunch, add turbinado sugar on top of the muffins before baking. If you use a standard muffin pan, these make 12, if you have a jumbo muffin pan, it will make 6.
