Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

hese muffins are sooo yummy and totally taste like Fall. They are pretty easy to make too! I made these to fill an autumn basket and not only do they taste great they look delicious!! Here is what you need to make 24 muffins...and if you cant eat all of them they stay great in the freezer, just wrap in saran and store them in a ziplock!
  • 4cups all purpose baking mix (like bisquick)
  • 1cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 2/3cup quick/instant or old fashioned oats
  • 3/4cup sugar
  • 1tsp cinnamon (or more if you like)
  • 1 can Pumpkin Pie mix (like Libby's)
  • 2 large eggs
For the streusel topping you need:
  • 2/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/4 cup packed brown sugar or white sugar (whatever you have)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp cold butter
Preheat the oven to 400*F and grease 24 muffin tins or use paper liners.
Make your streusel by combining dry ingredients and cutting in cold butter with back of fork (or you can use your hands if it is easier) until it is crumbly. Done. Set it aside!
Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl. Combine eggs and pumpkin in another bowl and stir into dry mix JUST UNTIL MOIST!  Spoon into muffin cups and fill 3/4 of the way. Top with streusel mix. (You may have extra streusel..that's OK put it in the fridge in a 
container with lid and it will last weeks..use it on other delicious treats!)
Bake for 15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Here is the finished basket...cellophane and a wicker basket make it look store bought don't you think!!
