Streusel Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

Publisher Photo
These nicely spiced muffins are a great accompaniment to any meal - or try them for breakfast, dessert or a snack. The pumpkin flavor is complemented by a sweet brown sugar topping. You'll never know they're made with egg substitute. -Connie Pietila, Atlantic Mine, Michigan

"YUMMMS.These were so delicious, the streusel topping was amazing, although I made half without it and stirred in some raisins and they turned out just as great.Only ingredient I would omit next time would be the orange zest, a little too citrusy for me.I also made these without the molasses since I did not have any at hand.Thanks for the recipe!!!"

"So tender and delicious - I think they are going to be my favorite pumpkin muffin. Use the greater amount of pumpkin pie spice in the recipe - it makes it so much more flavorful (I have made it both ways). Very good!"
