Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Muffins

Pumkin. Oatmeal. Streusel topping. Really where could you go wrong?? This recipe is everything I love about Fall flavors all in a muffin.

Baby girl even loved them. Although before I gave her one I stole the top... the part with all the sugar. At least for now she doesn't know what shes missing.  

Serve it warm with an ice cold glass of milk and it makes for a perfect breakfast... especially when you wake up to snow like we did this morning.
