Hi Love,

Autumn is finally here! This time of year just wouldn’t be the same without the scent of pumpkin baking in the oven. These pumpkin muffins with pecan streusel are guaranteed to catapult you right into the middle of a pumpkin patch with a scarecrow perched by your side and a hay ride driving by. There’s also a good chance, after indulging in these muffins, you may mysteriously desire to start to play the fiddle or feel compelled to bury yourself in a huge pile of leaves. Either way you’ll be enjoying the magic of autumn!

This pecan streusel is incredibly easy to make and so delectable. I got the idea from a sweet potato casserole I used to make with the same type of topping. Only that recipe used flour and an entire cup of brown sugar. I’m still amazed by how wonderful old recipes still can be when converted to paleo. Get creative with your old recipes! Replace wheat flour with almond/coconut flour or omit it all together, if you can, as I do in this streusel. Another topping idea for this muffin is to use chocolate nibs or my homemade chocolate. The chocolate recipe is soon to come! Enjoy!

Pumpkin Perfection,
