Pumpkin Apple Crisp Muffins

Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere! I am excited to try lots of recipes including Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Pumpkin Black Bean Chili, Pumpkin Pancakes and Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

For now, though, I am craving the combination of two classic fall flavors: pumpkin and apple.

I bring you Pumpkin Apple Crisp Muffins. It is adapted from this recipe on I changed a few things and cut way back on the sugar. If you like your baked goods sweet, you may want to check out the original version. These were just perfect for my taste. I also added oats to the streusel topping, apple crisp style.

Pumpkin Apple Crisp Muffins


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sucanat (or sugar)
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
15 oz can Libby's Pumpkin
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apple
1/4 cup water (if needed)


1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 18 muffin cups or use paper liners.

2.In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, spices, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, pumpkin and oil. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stirring just to moisten. Fold in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

3.In a small bowl, mix together oats, flour and brown sugar for topping. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter.

4.Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

Oh yeah...

Delicious topped with Homemade Apple Butter!

The "crisp" topping was the best part, I'm not gonna lie. The muffins themselves weren't very sweet so the topping added that little something extra.

In other news, I have had a terrible case of Bronchitis for the past 2 weeks. I can finally breathe again without wheezing and coughing so I AM going to exercise tomorrow! There. I wrote it down. I can't take it back now!!
