Maple-Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

With maple syrup in both the muffin and the streusel topping, the flavor of these muffins can't be beat! They are moist and light and taste like Fall! I wrote the recipe to appeal to most people, but added notations for my healthy version.

How to Make Maple-Pumpkin Streusel Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Combine oil, pumpkin, yogurt, eggs, vanilla, sugar, and syrup. Mix well.
  3. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.
  4. Mix dry ingredients into wet and stir to combine. Scoop into greased or paper lined muffin tins.
  5. Make streusel topping by combining flour and cinnamon and nuts, if using. Stir the syrup into the butter and then cut the butter mixture into the flour mixture til crumbly Sprinkle on muffins.
