For the muffins

  • 1/4 c pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/8 c + 2 tsp apple sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 c unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the streusel topping

  • 2 Tbs oats
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil solid


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ยบ F and prepare a 6 well muffin tin with paper liners or baking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, brown sugar, apple sauce and egg, whisk until smooth.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until it just comes together, it's ok if it's a little lumpy (over working the batter makes tough, chewy muffins).
  5. In a small bowl make the streusel topping by stirring together the oats, flour, brown sugar and salt.
  6. Cut the coconut oil in using a fork and stir until the mixture is a sandy texture.
  7. Divide the batter between the paper liners and top with 1/6 of the streusel topping.
  8. Bake for 16-18 minutes until a tester comes out with just a few crumbs.
  9. Cool in the pan 5 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely or serve warm.
