Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins

The calendar reads “September,” but the weather in Georgia is definitely still in summer mode. A few mornings last week were nice and crisp, though.

It had me wishing for more. For that Fall chill.

[Georgia, you’re such a tease that way.]

It had me dreaming and thinking up recipes to test for the holidays.

That was weird. Holidays…ALREADY?

Yep. It happens just that quickly!

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins (THM S)

Multiple servings

  • 1 c pumpkin puree
  • 1 c THM baking blend (or 1/3 c coconut flour, 1/3 c ground flax, and 1/3 c almond flour)
  • 1/2 c Swerve or Gentle Sweet
  • 2 Tsp melted butter or coconut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 4-8 drops stevia extract
  • coconut oil spray or muffin liners

For streusel topping:

  • 1/4 c baking blend (or other blend, as above)
  • 1/4 c Swerve or Gentle Sweet
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans
  • 6 Tsp butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For the muffins, combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a medium bowl, beat together the wet ingredients. Gently combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir until everything just comes together.

Spray a nonstick muffin pan with coconut oil. Begin dropping the muffin batter into the pan. TIP* I find I get the perfect scoop with an ice cream scoop.

Prepare the streusel by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl and cutting them with a fork or using your hands. The texture you’re looking for is paste-like.

Drop small amounts of the streusel on top of each muffin, using your hands to break it up slightly.

Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool for at least 10 minutes, so that the streusel hardens.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
