I love versatile, delicious muffins. A great portable breakfast, they are perfect in a lunchbox and make a lovely snack with a cup of tea or a glass of milk. My late Mom was very nutrition conscious and her baked goods were generally a rare, much looked forward to treat. However muffins were something she made often and for me, they have always been comfort food. I have a huge number of muffin recipes, many of which I have already blogged and of these, the ones in this post are among my favourites.
The first muffin recipe I ever made as a child was Bran Muffins. A lot of my muffin recipes have a story behind them and that one is no exception. Many of my muffin recipes have evolved or been adapted from my late Mom’s collection – all of them are a labour of love and appear regularly on our family table.
Some of my Best Muffin Recipes
Full of wholesome ingredients, these Carrot Walnut Bran Muffins are a filling and tasty muffin with just a bit of crunch.
An adaptation of one of my late Mom’s recipes, my Blueberry Chia Muffins with Lemon and Ginger are a light and tasty treat. You can make them with fresh or frozen, unthawed blueberries so you may even have all the ingredients already on hand!
Tender and lightly spiced, my Cinnamon Streusel Yogurt Muffins are very popular with a cup of tea on busy afternoons at our house.
Chock full of goodness, my Banana and Chia Seed Muffins are a great way to use up those leftover or just past their best bananas.
I have lovely memories of My Mom’s Jam Muffins. Using a blend of whole wheat and white flour makes these muffins a bit more nutritious and they can be made with any flavour jam you have on hand.
