Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins

Full of rich pumpkin flavor and warm, cozy spices, pumpkin pecan streusel muffins are just the thing to bring fall into your kitchen.



  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour see note


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar light or dark
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly coat a muffin tin with baking spray or line with paper cups. (This recipe usually yields 15 regular-sized muffins for me, so I just bake 12 and then another 3 in the same pan.)
  • In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs, and sugar. Whisk until smooth.
  • Sprinkle the baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves over the liquid ingredients. Whisk again until evenly combined.
  • Add the flour and fold in with a spatula or wooden spoon, mixing just until combined. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin wells.
  • In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and stir with a fork. Sprinkle the mixture evenly on top of the muffins.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, then, without opening the oven door, reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another 12-15 minutes. When done, the muffins will have a copper-like crust on top, and a toothpick inserted into the centers will come out with moist crumbs, but no large streaks of batter.
  • Let cool for 10-15 minutes in the pan, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Flour: Feel free to substitute up to 1/2 of the flour with white whole wheat flour.
  • Recipe: Adapted from Smitten Kitchen's pumpkin bread.
