Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins

28 Apr

These muffins are just amazing. I know it’s not pumpkin season but I just couldn’t resist after stumbling upon the recipe.  And with the buttermilk and whole wheat flour they are healthy, right? That’s what I keep telling myself at least.

My husband doesn’t like pumpkin. I think he may have been dropped on his head as a child because that is just wrong.  I’m out of town visiting my parents this week so I jumped on the chance to make something pumpkin.

The spices perfectly compliment these moist, pumpkin-y little gems. The texture is more dense and chewy than an average muffin due to the whole wheat flour but I think it goes well with the pumpkin. If you prefer a lighter muffin, replace the whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour.

    Is the molasses a key ingredient or could I omit that since I’m not a big fam?

      The molasses isn’t super important so you could surely omit it if you don’t enjoy the flavor. Hope you enjoy them!
