Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Graham Muffins


The joy of Autumn & the glorious taste of spices & pumpkin together in a variety of ways! These muffins are a great start to your day or the perfect treat to go with your evening cocoa or hot mulled cider! I made these without the extra add in ingredients but any of the ones on the list would be delicious too! No matter which you choose these muffins will be DELICIOUS!
 2 & 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs ( I crushed my own but bought are fine too)
1 Cup Sugar
1 TBS Baking Powder
1 TSP Salt
2 TSP Cinnamon
1 TSP Ginger
1/2 TSP Cloves
1/2 TSP Nutmeg
Stir all the dry together until mixed evenly! Now add all at once the following:
2 Beaten Eggs
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
2 TSP Vanilla
Dump right into the dry & mix with a heavy spoon until everything is wet & evenly mixed! 
ADD IN EXTRAS IF DESIRED: ! Cup Raisins, OR 1 Cup Chocolate Chips, OR 1 Cup Nuts Chopped, OR 1 Cup Coconut. Just stir in after after everything is mixed!
Spoon into a sprayed muffin pan with 12 wells. You may use paper liners if you wish! Now create the following topping:
3/4 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
2/3 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 TSP Cinnamon
4 TBS Melted Butter
Stir all dry together, add melted butter & mix well. Spoon over unbaked muffins dividing evenly over each muffin. Now sprinkle more cinnamon over each muffin & give a sprinkle of Sanding Sugar or regular sugar over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until baked to a nice lightly brown & raised top finish! I tested with a wooden toothpick & it came at clean at 20 minutes! You should smell the aroma in my kitchen right now, Pumpkin & Spices fill the house! You must let these cool about 6 minutes before removing from the pan! Just turn upside & dump. If any refuse to dump out tap the bottoms of the pan wells with a heavy knife, at last resort run a knife around the edges of the muffin. These will come out easily & I have not lost a muffin yet! ENJOY YOUR FALL FLAVOR FEST FOODIES!
