If there are just two sweet things I could eat it would be muffins and crumble. I'm not sure during the autumn I could decide which so finding something that combines the two has made me a very happy mum. After growing our own pumpkins this year I knew that these Pumpkin Crumble Muffins would be ideal to make. As last year we discovered Pumpkin Spice as a family and enjoyed trying and testing our favourite Pumpkin Spice Desserts this recipe had a lot to live up to. But it does. Delicious and perfect for autumn baking these Pumpkin Muffins with Crumble topping will go down a hit with your family too.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
One of the things that this recipe calls for is Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix. Now in the UK this isn't commonly found in the supermarkets yes I can order it online. But I like the ease of finding so after researching online I decided to put together my own pumpkin spice mix together and use that in recipes that call for the spice mix to be used.
We are not a fan of nutmeg so we've used less than other recipes and more cinnamon and ginger which my kids love the taste of.

How to Make your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice for these Pumpkin Crumble Muffins
Put all of the spices together and mix. Place in a spice jar -> we like these Kilner Spice Jars and use them for our Fajita/Taco spice mix as well <- and mix together well. This mix will store easily through the autumn and is more likely to run out of mix than it is to run out.
