Pumpkin Muffins with Crumble Topping


Does your kid think you are a short order cook?


My toddler does, esp in the morning. She likes to proclaim “I’d like pancakes and bacon.” Okay, sure, but it’s a Tuesday morning, so… no.

But I can usually talk her into a muffin.


I enjoy whipping up a batch of muffins, even on a week day morning as it’s a quick process when I am using a mix, and then I can hop in the shower while they bake. It’s all about multi-tasking in the mornings and I can manage to make some delish muffins with our favorite mixes from Krusteaz.

She likes their blueberry muffins the most but since she just inhaled some pumpkin spice pancakes recently I decided to see if she would love the pumpkin spice muffins as well. And we all won out since she liked them.

I did jazz up the muffins with a yummy crumble on top.


The crumble is quickly made with some melted butter, flour, sugar, cinnamon and pepitas. It adds great flavor and texture to the super soft, airy muffins. Plus, I love pepitas so I use a ridiculous amount of them in my fall baking. #sorrynotsorry

I hope your day starts off as well as our days do when we begin our days with freshly baked muffins.
