Pumpkin spice latte muffins with pink dish cloth

Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins

These streusel-topped pumpkin spice latte muffins are spiked with coffee and goodness! They make for a nice warm treat on a cool fall day, they have a light texture and are sweeter than our regular muffins.


  • You can use an ice cream scoop to portion the dough, ensuring portion size and keep things tidy.
  • You can omit the streusel by topping with oven-baked pumpkin seeds. Check muffins at the 20-minutes mark if you chose to omit the streusel.

    Made these today. They are the perfect combination of sweet and pumpkin. I’ll make these every time I want to feel autumn in my bones.

    I made these today to use up some pumpkin and they were absolutely delicious. The streusel topping is wonderfully crunchy and adds a fabulous element to the muffins and the coffee is a great flavour bomb!! I’ll be making them again!! Don’t even think of leaving the coffee out!

    Fantastic, so quick and easy to make.
    I used half oil, half applesauce and they are perfect.
    Thank you! ?

    Made these muffins last week, and they are delicious! I froze half of them, and that worked out well, too. Time to make more!

    I thought my pumpkin muffin recipe was good until I made this one. Just the best.

    These are nicely spiced and very moist! Streusel adds a a little crunch.

    Can this be done gluten free?

    Fantastic recipe! Made a loaf instead of muffins; baked it a little longer, 55 minutes. Great flavours with Crosby molasses, pumpkin spice and rich coffee lingering in the background. Very moist and not too sweet; streusel topping would be great on ANY loaf, muffin or coffee cake. A lovely recipe to add to my fall/ winter collection. Thank you Bridget!

    Can you leave out the coffee in the recipe?
