  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon Sugar

  • Preheat oven to 220° C (480° F). Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray. Set aside
  • For the brown sugar streusel, in a little bowl, add cold butter, brown sugar, flour, and a little water and mix with a fork. It should be clumpy – trust me it's worth it. Set aside
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add all the wet ingredients (pumpkin puree, greek yogurt, oat milk, oil, vanilla). Mix well
  • In a smaller bowl, add all the dry ingredients (cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, flour, baking soda/powder, allspice, cloves, ginger, salt)
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined – do not overmix
  • Pour about 1/4 scoop of batter into each muffin tin. Scoop about 1-2 tsp. size of streusel on top
  • Place in over and bake for 5 minutes – then immediately lower the heat to 175° C (350° F)
  • Cook for remaining 20-25 minutes
  • Remove from heat and cool slightly before eating
  • Enjoy!
