Are you ready for a delicious Pumpkin Muffin Recipe with cinnamon streusel? These pumpkin muffins are moist and delicious!

When my Pumpkin Bread was such a hit with the family, I thought, is there anything else I can make that would go over well? After much thinking (maybe 15 seconds), I thought, “What about trying a Pumpkin Muffin Recipe?”

Now you might be thinking, “Can’t you just take the bread recipe and make muffins instead?” Of course you can! However, I wanted to change the ingredients around a bit to see if I could come up with something yummy and new in muffin form.

What’s Different with this Pumpkin Muffin recipe?

First, I removed the pudding. Why? Well, I added the pudding to the bread to give it that added moist texture. Since bread is cooked in one big pan, I am always worried that my bread on the outside will dry out before the bread on the inside is cooked well enough.

Since muffins are much smaller, I figured I could take the pudding out. I also substituted applesauce for oil in this pumpkin muffin recipe. I have heard that doing this removes some fat from the recipe as well as adds to the moistness. Finally, I added a fun streusel topping because what is a muffin without a yummy topping? 😉 Each bite is the perfect sugar pumpkin combination!

What makes these the best pumpkin muffins?

Let’s just be honest here, cinnamon streusel makes every baked good taste better! I mean, how can you go wrong with the perfect combo of brown sugar, cinnamon and butter?! You just can’t! Combine that with the best pumpkin muffin recipe around and you have yourself an epic treat that will disappear as quickly as it took to make them. Even when I’ve doubled the recipe, they went much faster than I expected! And that is totally okay because these muffins are so simple to make.

Ingredients for pumpkin muffin recipe with cinnamon streusel:

The ingredients are easy and you probably have most of them in your pantry. You’ll have delicious muffins to enjoy, hot out of the oven.

Muffin Mix:

  • 1½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup Oats
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

Streusel Topping:

  • 5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

How to make the best pumpkin muffins:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Place paper muffin cups inside a muffin tin. Spray muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.

To make the streusel topping – combine butter and white and brown sugars with an electric mixer. Slowly stir in flour and cinnamon until topping resembles small crumbs. Set this mixture aside.


For the muffin batter, mix all of the dry ingredients together well.

Then, mix all of the wet ingredients (applesauce, eggs, and pumpkin)  making sure they’re mixed well.

Slowly add the wet ingredient mixture to the flour mixture. Stir by hand until everything is combined. Do not over mix because it could result in spongy muffins.

Fill the muffin cups approximately ¾ full. Then sprinkle with 2-3 teaspoons of streusel topping on top of every muffin.

Bake at 350 degrees  for 15-17 minutes or until knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

The Result?

The best muffins, ever! Or atleast that is what everyone tells me once they’ve tasted them! Mix them up and try for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!

Tips to making this Pumpin Muffins Recipe:

Instead of just spooning enough batter into each muffin cup, I love to use a large baking scoop. It makes spooning the batter in the muffin tins so quick and easy and  it delivers the perfect amount of batter every time. No more guessing whether they’re full enough or not!

This is the perfect Pumpkin Muffin Recipe if you like simple, yet tasty muffins. It is also a great “base recipe” for adding little extras. Some of our favorite things to add are raisins, chopped nuts or chopped apples. What is your favorite muffin addition?

We can’t wait to hear what your family thought of these muffins!

  1. How much ground ginger and ground cloves? The recipe has a question mark instead of quantity? This recipe sounds sooo good, I just need to know those ingredients. Thanks!

  2. I’m so sorry about that! I have corrected the post and the recipe. I used 1/4 tsp of cloves and 1/2 tsp of ginger for this recipe. Thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    You’re right… this is the best muffin EVER!! (I’ve made a lot over the last 30+ years!)
    Very moist and fluffy with flavours close to gingerbread. I do wish there was a way to reduce the sugar, but they really are splurge worthy!!

    Note; I always heat my oven to 425 when baking muffins then turn it down to the recipe temp (350) when I put them in. Some people say to reduce heat after 5 minutes. I think the high temp has something to do with activating the baking powder. The first time I made these I didn’t follow this, they were VERY good, but this time I found them a bit fluffier following this method.

    I just love these muffins. Just the right amount of spice and the topping is so crunchy. Can’t wait to make them again
