For the Muffins:
- 1 and 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1 and 1/3 cups pumpkin puree
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup milk
For the Streusel (optional, but highly recommended!):
- 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup rolled oatmeal
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoon crushed pecans
- 4 tablespoons room temperature butter
For the Muffins:
- Preheat oven to 400°F and spray a 6-cup jumbo muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with paper liners (*see notes)
- In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Whisk until combined.
- In a smaller mixing bowl bowl, add oil, sugars, pumpkin puree, eggs and milk. Whisk until well combined.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients then using a rubber spatula, gently fold until just combined.
- Using a cookie scoop, add batter filling muffin cups about 3/4 full. If using, top with streusel (pressing down to ensure it won’t all fall off when they bake!).
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (a few wet crumbs are okay).
- Allow muffins to cool for several minutes in the muffin pan, then remove and finish cooling on a wire cooling rack.
For the Streusel:
- Combine all ingredients together in a bowl.
- Storage: Muffins will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
- To make standard muffins: Coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or paper liners. Fill cups 3/4 full then top with streusel (if using). Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- If you can’t find pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own by combining 3 tbsp. ground cinnamon, 2 tsp. ground ginger, 2 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1 tsp. ground allspice and 1 tsp. ground cloves
