Pumpkin apple streudel muffins are the moist and flavorful treat you needed this fall. With chunks of apple nestled in a pumpkin muffin and covered in a homemade streudel crumb topping, these muffins are absolutely to die for!
Pumpkin apple muffins are delicious when warm out of the oven. Your family and your friends are all going to devour these bad boys. But that’s okay! This pumpkin apple muffin recipe is so easy to make that you can whip up another batch (or hand the recipe to someone else and make them do all of the work!)
I Love These Pumpkin Muffins
I’m not really much of a pumpkin fan, or at least I didn’t think I was until I tried these muffins! My mom had been making them for years and I never even tried them because I didn’t think I would like them. Thank goodness I tried one because 10 muffins later I realized I couldn’t stop eating them (they are just THAT good!)
What kind of apple should I use?
You can use any type of baking apple of your choice. Granny smith and pink ladies are two varieties that would work great in this recipe, they’d also help to add a little more diversity to the flavor and reduce some of the overall sweetness.
Should I use fresh pumpkin or canned pumpkin?
You can use canned pumpkin puree or even fresh and homemade pumpkin puree, whichever you have on hand or desire is great. Just make sure that if you are using the canned pumpkin puree that you get actual pumpkin puree and not canned pumpkin pie filling because there is a large noticeable difference between the two.
