Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins with Streusel Topping

The pumpkin affair continues, and there is no end in sight! So far this Fall I have whipped up Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Streusel Topping, Pumpkin Spice Latte's, Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake, and now these Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins with Streusel Topping.  I also have Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting coming this week, and so many more recipes bookmarked to try. I hope you aren't pumpkin'd out yet, because I'm sure not :)

If you are as pro-pumpkin as I am, I have also made Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with a cinnamon glaze, Pumpkin Bread, Chocolate and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. Whew!

This is another amazing pumpkin recipe from the beautiful Tracy of, I think she understand the pumpkin love!

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins with Streusel Topping
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Streusel Topping
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/2 cup oats
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/3 cup cold butter
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F and line a muffin pan with liners
  2. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, salt, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and rolled oats in a large bowl
  3. In a second large bowl, whisk together the egg, pureed pumpkin, milk, and sour cream until smooth
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well
  5. Divide the batter between the 12 prepared muffin cups
  6. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon
  7. Add the cold butter and cut it into the streusel mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs (you can use a pastry cutter, two knives, or even your fingers to do this!)
  8. Sprinkle the streusel topping on top of the filled muffin cups
  9. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the centre of a muffin
  10. Enjoy!
