Streusel Topped Pumpkin Mini Muffins

Pumpkin Streusel Top MuffinsPumpkin season is upon us again.  It’s funny how it just keeps coming back year after year, but I’m not complaining.  I really do love most things pumpkin, whether sweet or savory, so I look forward to this season every year.  What I’m not wild about is ALL the crazy new products that come out this time of year! As with most great foods/super foods/the latest food, diet craze, the big food companies think the more the better and keep coming up with new ways to capitalize on the latest fad.  A few of the newest pumpkin products on the market this year that I just have to say “no, no thank you” to are Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, Pumpkin Triscuits (really, the original is as good as it gets), Lindor Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Truffles (I just can’t get on board with pumpkin & chocolate together), and really “no, extra no” Pumpkin Spice Latte Peeps ( if they were shaped like turkeys, maybe!).  So instead, why not just make these delicious Streusel Top Pumpkin Mini Muffins.  I love the mini muffin, because it’s a perfect lunch box snack or mid-day momma pick me up.  These pumpkin muffins are extra moist with a nice spongy texture from the combination of yogurt and pumpkin puree, plus they have no added fat from oil or butter. The only fat comes from protein rich eggs and yogurt.  I also use a combo of all purpose and whole wheat flour plus oats in the streusel topping.  These pumpkin streusel top muffins make a perfect healthy snack filled with fiber, vitamins (beta carotene!), protein and calcium, yum!
