Pumpkin oatmeal muffins with cinnamon walnut streusel

I know this recipe involves the exact same ingredients as my breakfast post, but I’ve been wanting to bake something with pumpkin and today just was the day to to do it. I followed Julie’s recipe for the muffins, except I used unsweetened almond milk instead of regular milk.

Just mix the dry ingredients with the wet ones…
 

…to make a lovely, orange, lumpy butter.

I decided I wanted to pretty my muffins up a little by adding a topping, so I went with a cinnamon walnut streusel. I cut up 2 Tbs of cold butter into little pieces, added in 2 Tbs of brown sugar  and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, crumbled it all together with my fingers, and put it on top of the muffins.

Oh. My. Gosh…the smell that took over my apartment while these were baking was amazzzzing. And they tasted just as good! The pumpkin puree keeps them super moist, and the streusel reminded me of my mom’s homemade coffee cake! It was such a great addition to the muffins.
