Today I have an almond streusel topping for pumpkin breakfast muffins which I’ve shared today over at my friend Cynthia’s blog, Feeding Big. Cynthia is also the host of the #FillTheCookieJar baking group.
I’m so happy to share my recipe for pumpkin breakfast muffins with Cynthia while she is recuperating. This easy muffin is a delicious treat on a cool fall morning and, can you believe, it’s whipped up in a blender!
This time of year life can be quite hectic so finding a quick and easy recipe is always welcome.
Fall makes me think of family gatherings and entertaining. This breakfast muffin recipe is a great addition to any brunch menu this time of year. Not only is this very easy to make you can also add additional fall spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and/or pumpkin pie spice.
A sprinkling of powdered sugar or maybe a drizzle of cinnamon glaze make these muffins extra special. However, one of my favorite toppings on muffins is an almond streusel topping.
I couldn’t resist making another batch this weekend with an almond streusel topping. I like a crunchy streusel so I added almonds today. You can use any nuts you prefer or whatever you have in your pantry.
I always make the streusel topping first before I mix the batter so that the streusel is ready as soon as the batter is poured into the muffin pan.
