Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins hot from the oven

The aroma of fresh baked goods is a wonderful experience, especially when cinnamon is involved.  These muffins have a cinnamon streusel topping and cinnamon chips inside.  Double the flavor.  A treat for your eyes when just out of the oven and the little pockets of molten cinnamon chips are visible on top of the muffin.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins

1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 large egg slightly beaten
1 3/4 cup flour
