A Little Sumpin' Pumpkin!

Have you gotten your fill of pumpkin yet? Nah, neither have we! In fact, we'll probably be making these delicious muffins all year-round...

Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
3 tbsp. old-fashioned oats
3 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour 

1/2 cup all-purpose flour 

1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup canned pure pumpkin

2/3 cup granulated white sugar (or HG Alternative) 

1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
1/4 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray it with nonstick spray.

Combine streusel ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix and mash until uniform and crumbly.

To make the muffins, in a large bowl, combine both types of flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. 

In medium-large bowl, combine remaining muffin ingredients, and whisk until uniform. Add mixture to the large bowl, and stir until just mixed and smooth. (Batter will be thick.)

Evenly distribute batter among the cups of the muffin pan, and smooth out the surfaces. Sprinkle with streusel mixture.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 - 20 minutes.

Streus' on the Loose!

This time of year, you might find yourself in front of that glass pastry case and think, "More pumpkin baked goods? I can resist 'em!" But then you see that these muffins have streusel on top. And streusel is amazing. But it's also dangerous. After all, it's essentially a mixture of flour, butter, and sugar... on top of a mixture of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs. OOOPS. There's only way to resist such dangerously delicious treats... and that's to indulge in our slimmed-down swap! Because eating right and chowing down on pumpkin streusel goodies should not be mutually exclusive.
