Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by Littleolmee

I've made these MANY times now and they are, bar none, our favorite muffin recipe. The only changes I make are: using 1 1/2 cups sugar (3/4 cup brown and 3/4 cup regular); doubling the streusel topping (my husband's favorite part); using olive oil instead of veggie oil; doubling the spices. I have found that doubling the spices and using some brown sugar adds a richness to these muffins. Baking them a second longer than 35 minutes tends to make them a bit overdone and stick to the pan. They are even better 2 or 3 days later...after they have been incubating in a tupperware for awhile, it makes them even more moist and yummified. I only wish I could take credit for this recipe myself when I give them away to people, but alas, I cannot tell a lie and I tell them where I got the recipe, hee hee. Thanks! :)
