A Few Notes

  • The recipe makes 16 muffins. When you solely have one 12-cup muffin tin, the remaining batter is ok to relaxation on the counter ready to bake within the second batch.
  • The recipe can simply be halved…or doubled.
  • I haven’t tried freezing these, however it ought to work nice albeit the streusel softening and possibly getting slightly messy post-defrost.
  • As famous under, complete wheat flour works nice in these muffins and the heartiness and texture compliments the pumpkin taste. If utilizing complete wheat, I favor white complete wheat or einkhorn wheat flour. Measure with a light-weight hand so the muffins aren’t dense.
  • The streusel will soften a bit if the muffins are saved in a coated container or bag. There’s no method round this, particularly in case you’re storing leftovers for the subsequent day. They’re nonetheless terribly scrumptious (the muffins keep moist – sorry – for days).

I’m powerless within the face of most muffins, however even nonetheless, these pumpkin snickerdoodle muffins are particular.

The streusel is slightly bit buttery and slightly bit crunchy which is a stellar companion to the gentle fluffiness of the pumpkin muffin.

I can’t wait so that you can strive them!
