Fall is around the corner… though with the temps this week predicted in the low 90’s, it might take awhile. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer – I would rather have the heat instead of the cold! But when it does start cooling off, one of my favorite ingredients is pumpkin.
I ‘m getting a head start with these muffins. I was just craving pumpkin flavor and this just hit the spot. I kept it pretty easy by using a mix. (I got this one at Trader Joe’s but I’ve seen others in the market.) Or maybe you have a favorite pumpkin muffin recipe – use that, but be sure to top with the tasty streusel I came up with.
- 1 box Pumpkin bread/muffin mix from Trader Joe’s or your favorite recipe
- 3/4 cup pecans
- 1 cup oats
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (grated fresh in you have on hand)
- 5 tablespoons cold butter cut in cubes
- 3 tablespoons confectioner sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
I made half with glaze – The DIY Guy of course had to have one of each… though I don’t think he came up with a clear winner!
