Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping 5
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins are just amazing. I know it’s not pumpkin season but I just couldn’t resist after stumbling upon the recipe.  And with the buttermilk and whole wheat flour they are healthy, right?

That’s what I keep telling myself at least.

Joel doesn’t like pumpkin. I think he may have been dropped on his head as a child because that is just wrong.  I’m out of town visiting my parents this week so I jumped on the chance to make something pumpkin.

The spices perfectly compliment these moist, pumpkin-y little gems. The texture is more dense and chewy than an average muffin due to the whole wheat flour but I think it goes well with the pumpkin. 

If you prefer a lighter muffin, replace the whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour.

I’ve updated the photos for these here and my little sous chef wanted to help with the photo shoot. He makes these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins look good.

  1. Is the molasses a key ingredient or could I omit that since I’m not a big fam?

    1. The molasses isn’t super important so you could surely omit it if you don’t enjoy the flavor. Hope you enjoy them!
