Makes 6 jumbo muffins


Ingredients

Pumpkin Muffins

  • ½ cup vegetable or canola oil

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 15 oz pure pumpkin

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg

  • ¼ tsp ground ginger

  • ¼ cup ground cloves

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

Pecan Streusel

  • ½ cup old fashioned oats

  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour

  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed

  • ½ cup pecans, chopped

  • 2 Tbsp salted butter, melted

Maple Glaze

  • 4 Tbsp pure maple syrup

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted


Directions

Pumpkin Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a jumbo muffin pan with paper liners.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, vanilla, sugars, pumpkin, spices, salt, baking powder, and baking soda until combined. Then add in the flour and whisk well until incorporated.

Pecan Streusel

  1. For the pecan streusel, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, and pecans in a small bowl. Drizzle the melted butter on top of the mixture and stir well to combine until the butter is completely incorporated and the mixture is crumbly and resembles wet sand. (I used my fingers to thoroughly mix in the butter.)

  2. Evenly divide the batter among the cavities of the prepared pan. Then evenly sprinkle the streusel on top of each muffin.

  3. Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Maple Glaze

  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt together the maple syrup and butter on high for 30 seconds. Whisk well to combine. Then whisk in the confectioners' sugar until smooth. Allow the maple glaze to cool slightly before drizzling on top of the muffins. Once the muffins and glaze are cool, drizzle the glaze on top of each muffin.
