Pumpkin Muffins with Crumble Topping

Over the years, I’ve become sort of a muffin snob. After testing dozens of muffin recipes, I can confidently say that this is one of my, as well as Thriving Home readers’, all-time favorites. The muffins’ soft, moist texture is perfectly complemented by the crunchy, sweet crumble topping. Plus, with all the autumn-inspired spices, these surprisingly nutritious muffins pack a delightful “pumpkin pie” punch. Tip: Here are 2 Ways to Store or Freeze Muffins to make them last longer.
