- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 1 cup canola oil

- Whisk together the first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, set aside. Add sugar, eggs, oil, pumpkin and vanilla to a large mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and continue mixing just until combined.
- Streusel: Add all ingredients to a small bowl, using hands or a fork, mix until well combined. (Add 1/2 cup minced pecans to streusel if desired. This option is not calculated in the nutritional data).
