Yummy cream cheese pumpkin muffins!

Fall is in the air and that means two things at my house. Pumpkin and baking. I love it even more when I can have both in one. That’s why I love these delicious cream cheese pumpkin muffins. Not to mention that they are incredibly easy to make. I love pretty much every pumpkin recipe there is and these are no exception! If you love pumpkin too, we have quite a few pumpkin recipes here, see 30 of our favorite pumpkin recipes!

delicious cream cheese pumpkin muffins for fall

So easy to make!

First you will want to line 18 muffin cups with paper baking cups or I prefer to actually use these silicone baking cups. You can also grease and flour the muffin cups instead of using liners if that’s easier for you. No right or wrong way here.
Heat oven to 375°.
Filling: In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until smooth; set aside.
Muffins: In a large mixing bowl, combine the 2 2/3 cups of flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Add eggs, pumpkin, oil, and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat until well blended. Topping: In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, butter, and nuts. Work together with a fork or fingers.Fill muffin cups about one-third full with the muffin batter, then put about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture in the center of each.

Top with about 1 more tablespoon of the pumpkin batter, or until cups are about 3/4 full. Sprinkle muffins with streusel topping. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm.

Spoil your family with these delicious and extremely easy to make cream cheese pumpkin muffins. You can also serve these as an Easter dessert! All you need to do is swap out the pumpkin recipe for a carrot cake recipe. I make this version pretty often and it’s always been a big hit at Easter dinner.
