These delicious fall pumpkin coffee cake muffins are perfect for cool, fall days!
When the cooler temps of fall arrive my baking itch kicks in! All summer I’ve kept the oven off as much as possible because it’s just been to dang hot! But yesterday was in the 70’s and it felt AMAZING. So good in fact that I got to baking and whipped up some yummy fall pumpkin coffee cake muffins!
And speaking of fall recipes, I have a ton to share with you today. I’ve teamed up with Krista from The Happy Housie and many other fabulous bloggers to share some seriously scrumptious food. But before I show you all those goodies, let’s talk about these muffins!
Muffins are my husband love language. I mentioned I was thinking about making some muffins. And as soon as those words left my mouth he said to me, ‘Is there anything I can do to make that happen?! I’ll watch the boys. Do the dishes. You name it!’ 🙂
So of course, I had to make my man some muffins. And while I was making them I decided to add in a little twist! Because I’m a huge chocolate lover, I had to toss just a few chocolate chips into the mix.
Chris is not a fan of chocolate so I only added chips to about five of the muffins. And if you have ones in your family that aren’t big on chocolate as well, this fall pumpkin coffee cake muffin is just as heavenly without them. The streusel crumble on top really does ‘take the cake’!
Even though Chris is not a chocolate lover, he is a cinnamon honey butter fan. So I whipped up a little of that for him and I included it in the recipe below as well, for you! 🙂
I’m willing to bet, you have everything in your kitchen right at this very moment to make these yummy fall muffins. So….it’s time to get to bakin’!
I do hope you will give these Fall Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins a try and let me know if you loved them!
