Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins are full of pumpkin spice flavor and topped with a buttery pecan streusel. You'll love these yummy muffins!
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, vanilla and melted (but cooled) butter in a large mixing bowl. Whisk well, until combined/smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt; stir to combine. Stir or whisk these ingredients a little at a time into the pumpkin mixture. Stir or whisk only until ingredients have been incorporated into the batter. Don't overmix!
Place 12 paper-liners into a standard sized muffin tin. Spray paper liners with non-stick baking spray, if desired. Fill each muffin cup about halfway with batter, dividing the batter evenly. Set pan aside; make streusel topping.
MAKE STREUSEL TOPPING: In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, pecans, pumpkin spice, melted butter and salt. Streusel topping will be fairly crumbly. Top muffins with streusel, dividing evenly.
Bake muffins for 20 minutes at 375°F. When done, muffins will be browned on top and a toothpick inserted into the top of a muffin should come out batter-free. Remove from oven; lightly sprinkle sifted powdered sugar on top of each muffin. Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling, then serve and enjoy!
