Paleo Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Pumpkin season is upon us, so I thought sharing a tasty recipe for pumpkin muffins would be a delicious way to spend this Monday.



If you thought pumpkin muffins couldn’t get any better, think again. These are pumpkin muffins with a streusel topping, and a glaze. Even. Better.



For this recipe I used our Pumpkin Pie Spice in the muffins, and then our Cinnamon Sugar Cookie blend for the Streusel topping. The glaze is optional. If you don’t have time, or want to avoid powdered sugar, you can skip it. These muffins will be just as tasty with just the Streusel topping.



I love baking, especially baking in the fall, so developing a perfect pumpkin pie spice blend was really important to me. Our blend takes all of the guesswork out of pumpkin baking for you. There’s no need to combine your own spices for your Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, or your fall pumpkin bread. We’ve done the work for you, and the result is delicious!



I love having our Cinnamon Sugar Cookie blend on hand for baked goods, because it uses maple sugar instead of white sugar, and is the perfect option for any recipe that calls for a cinnamon sugar topping. It’s great sprinkled into coffee, on pancakes or waffles, and of course on toast.



These muffins were really fun to make, and even more fun to eat! If you are looking for something tasty to make this fall, give this recipe a try!



Since fall is just about to roll in with its cool temperatures and multitude of seasonal treats (Yes!!) it’s the perfect time to pick up our Sweet Pack of fall flavors. 🙂
