In a bowl of a food processor combine date mixture, pumpkin puree, coconut oil (melted), coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, baking soda, and pumpkin spice.  Process until well combine and the date mixture is pureed.  Add coconut flour and process again until combine.

To make streusel, combine all ingredients and stir to combine.

Fill each paper cup ¾ full of batter and top with streusel.  Bake muffins for 30 to 35 minutes.

Note: I just used olive oil b/c i didn’t have coconut oil at the time. coconut oil is way better to use bc it “maintains its chemical integrity” even at “high temperatures”*
