The cool weather of fall always makes me crave snacking on a muffin with a latte. I know you’ll love these fall muffins, and I suggest making a double batch and freezing them for when you’re craving something with pumpkin.

I made these muffins with ingredients from Bob’s Red Mill. I love using their all-purpose flour, which is milled from the best wheat. I find it makes an amazing pie crust, brownies, muffins, and cakes. If you haven’t yet, I urge you to grab your baking flours from Bob’s Red Mill

Pumpkin muffin batter.

Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups filling each three-fourths full.

To make the streusel, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl until combined. Using your fingers, clump some of the streusels.

Do pumpkin muffins need to be refrigerated?

No, pumpkin muffins do not need to be refrigerated. You can store them in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature or stored in the refrigerator for five days. You can store them for up to 3 months in the freezer.

Can you make pumpkin muffins with pumpkin pie filling?

Yes, you can make pumpkin muffins with pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin puree is preferred, but you can use pumpkin pie filling. I suggest decreasing the sugar and decreasing the spices since the pumpkin pie filling is already sweetened and has pumpkin pie spices.

Can I use another oil instead of coconut oil?

Yes, you can use light-tasting oil instead of coconut oil. Coconut oil helps muffins come out light and tender. If the coconut taste bothers you, you can use refined coconut oil.
