Ingredient Checklist
Walnut Streusel
Cream Cheese Icing (optional)


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat twelve 21/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray (do not use paper bake cups); set aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour, the 1/3 cup oats, the flaxseed meal, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, pumpkin, the 1/2 cup brown sugar, the 1/2 cup milk, the 3 tablespoons oil, and the vanilla. Add pumpkin mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Spoon batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups.

  • For walnut streusel, in a small bowl combine walnuts, the 2 tablespoons oats, the 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and the 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle evenly on top of batter in muffin cups.

  • Bake about 15 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin cups. Cool slightly on wire rack.

  • If desired, for Cream Cheese Icing, in a small bowl stir together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Gradually stir in enough of the 1 to 2 tablespoons milk to reach drizzling consistency. Before serving, drizzle icing over warm muffins.
