These Pumpkin Muffin Tops with Streusel Topping are a mouthful to say. But, bite into a mouthful, and you might be saying mmm mmm mmm delicious, and nothing more!
Recently, I have seen so many boxed muffin top mixes at grocery stores. And, I got to thinking. Who really came up with the very first muffin top recipe?
Google informed me that it was Ellen on Seinfeld. Or, well, a writer or whoever dreamed it up for the show.
But, even with Google’s help, I still couldn’t figure out who shared the very first muffin top recipe. I think it just might have been some food blogger somewhere. If you happen to know, please do tell…
In the meantime, let’s get back to these Pumpkin Muffin Tops with Streusel Topping…
- These Pumpkin Muffin Tops with Streusel Topping are simply delicious,
- They are so easy to whip up,
- And, quick to make,
- With their streusel topping, they are the perfect amount of sweet,
- They happen to be dairy-free,
- And, they are also free of any artificial ingredients and colors.
What are the ingredients needed to make these Pumpkin Muffin Tops?
You will need the following 12 ingredients for the muffin tops and the streusel topping:
- All-purpose flour
- Almond flour
- Granulated sugar
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Pumpkin spice
- Pumpkin purée
- Almond milk
- Pure vanilla extract
- Light brown sugar (for the streusel)
- Vegan butter (for the streusel)
Once you have all your ingredients, it’s just a matter of mixing your dry ingredients together. Then adding the wet ingredients in and giving it all a good mix. The dough at this point is wet but easily pliable to the shape you need it to be.
How do you make muffin tops without a special pan?
For this recipe, you do not need a muffin top pan. Just add spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking tray. And, shape them into rough circular mounds, using the back of your spoon.
Now, if you have a muffin top pan, by all means, feel free to use it. But it is definitely not a necessity for this recipe.
Don’t forget the streusel topping
After spooning and shaping the muffin top mix, you would make the streusel topping. Then, sprinkle a generous amount of the streusel topping onto each muffin top. Bake and in about 30 minutes you have a delicious, quick, easy, and portable breakfast, snack, or even dessert.
This is a small batch recipe. With the amount of ingredients listed, you can get approximately 4 muffin tops. If you need to feed more, then feel free to double or triple the recipe as needed.

This muffin would be great for Halloween! I'll be adding lion's mane mushroom powder from https://naturesrise.com/ for the extra protein though

I love muffins...so naturally it follows that I also love muffin tops! Add in the pumpkin spice flavors here, and I would be in autumn heaven. These look fantastic, Shashi. And I'm positive they won't last long around here! And I love that scene from Seinfeld...a whole episode about muffin tops. Amazing. :-)
