PUMPKIM PECAN MUFFINS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare 12 muffin cups. Tip: I like to use Silicone muffin cups because no preparation of the pans need to be done, just pour the batter right in, and they never stick.

MUFFINS:

  • 1 1/4 c. oats
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp each: salt, nutmeg & baking soda
  • 1/3 c. coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 c. pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

In large bowl, stir together oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, and pecans; set aside.

In medium bowl mix together pumpkin, brown sugar, oil, egg, milk, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Pour into prepared muffin cups; set aside.

STREUSEL TOPPING:

  • 1/4 c. oats
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 3 T. chopped pecans
  • 1/4 c. butter, diced

In small bowl stir together oats, flour, brown sugar, and pecans. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in butter until mixture resembles the size of peas. Sprinkle evenly over muffin batter.

Bake 15 - 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool in the muffin pans a few minutes before removing.

Makes 12 muffins
