The Most Lemony of Lemon MuffinsRecipes
Late one summer, when I was about 12 years old, my mother packed us all up in the van and took us to a small local fair. At this point there were six of us kids (or was it seven?) and any excuse to get out of the house was a good one. But my mom had a mission — she wasn’t just going to drag us out to a county fair. She was entering a baking contest. She wrapped up a couple loaves of intensely lemony quick bread, drizzled with lemon syrup and sprinkled generously with zest.

I wish you could smell these fall-inspired muffins cooling on my counter right now. Better yet, I wish you could actually be here in my kitchen right now. Because then we could sit down with mugs of coffee and one muffin each, and break off nutmeg-scented nibbles as we trade stories about our day. These muffins, which are great for breakfast, might just be one of my crowning achievements.

Breakfast Recipe: Savory Muffins with Prosciutto & ChivesRecipes
I grew up in a sprawling, voracious family that loved cereal so much we didn’t wait until breakfast to indulge. When my mom came home from the store with a load of “healthy” cereals and one special box of Golden Grahams, we all knew to pour a bowl immediately; it wouldn’t last until breakfast. My dad munched Cap’n Crunch as a late-night snack, and we anticipated our grandmother’s visits partly because that was the only time we’d get Honey Nut Cheerios.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Apple Zucchini MuffinsRecipes
Zucchini bread was one of the first things I learned how to bake from scratch. It was full of oil and topped with a mound of cream cheese frosting. My 20-year-old self was in love. Nowadays, especially since I bake so often, I try to look for healthier options. These apple-zucchini muffins are the perfect compromise — with their oat crumble topping and dollop of sweetened crème fraîche, that super-rich cream cheese frosting is hardly missed.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Whole Grain Gingerbread MuffinsRecipes
I don’t often write about muffins or even make them at home because, to be honest, I just don’t like most muffins! The typical coffee shop fare tends to have big, domed tops and are often too sweet for my taste. I’m drawn to those dense hippie muffins that are packed with a good bit of whole grain flour and interesting flavors and textures — which is exactly the kind of muffin I’m sharing today.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Banana Nut MuffinsRecipes
Banana nut muffins are one of the greatest pleasures of the breakfast table, and I’ll have strong words with anyone who says otherwise. They walk that fine line between wholesome breakfast and (let’s be honest) cake, and they walk it so very well. These particular banana nut muffins are my favorite. They are extra moist and tender — you can slice one in half, slather it with butter, and take a healthy bite, all without fear that your breakfast will disintegrate into crumbs.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Chocolate Chip MuffinsRecipes
My childhood best friend’s mother was the queen of boxed cooking. Whenever I had dinner at their house, we feasted on “canned cream-of” casseroles and powdered scalloped potatoes. But here’s the thing: the food was always hearty, fed a crowd, and appeared on the table at the same time every night. No exceptions. While the meal might not have been gourmet, it was still a quality family dinner. I was always welcome at the table and there was always plenty to go around.

Recipe: Quick & Tender Whole Wheat MuffinsRecipes
Here’s a recipe out of my weeknight playbook: a quick, easy, reliably moist batch of whole wheat muffins. They are a homey accompaniment to soups and salads, and since these only need to bake for 15 minutes, you can start them and be eating in under half an hour. (Leftovers are lovely for breakfast, too!) This is an adaptation of a recipe my mom made frequently while we were growing up, but I’ve tweaked it a bit.

Recipe: Cottage Cheese Muffins with Roasted Red Peppers and FetaRecipes
Many morning meals and recipes can be divisive in the same way that brownies (fudgy or cakey?) or chocolate chip cookies (soft, chewy, or crisp?) often are. There are people who tend towards the savory side of things and others who would choose a fruit scone, muffin, or stack of pancakes before they’d ever order eggs at brunch. That’s not to say you can’t dabble in both (I certainly do!

Recipe: Chocolate Zucchini MuffinsRecipes
Zucchini and chocolate might seem like an odd combination, but trust me — I was a skeptic myself once upon a time, until my mom served chocolate-zucchini cake to me as a child. I was alarmed by how good it was, and you will be too! If you bake from time to time, then you may have most of the ingredients in this recipe in your cupboard, and you’ll just need to get the fresh ingredients.

Recipe: Coffee Cake MuffinsRecipes
Sometimes when you combine two beloved things into one new form, you wonder how you ever ate them separately. I find this to be true especially after developing the recipe for these coffee cake muffins. With a buttery, crumbly topping and a slightly sweet glaze, they are truly the best of both worlds. I came up with the idea for these muffins this past summer at a diner in Upstate New York.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Chocolate-Cherry Granola MuffinsRecipes
Let’s talk about the differences between muffins and cupcakes. Cupcakes are treats or desserts, covered with heaps of frosting, but muffins should be just a touch sweet and full of good-for-you things that make an acceptable breakfast. That’s where these muffins — filled with dried cherry and oat-filled granola — come in! If I’m going to have a muffin for breakfast, I like it to include things I’d eat for breakfast anyway.

Recipe: One-Bowl Oat Muffins with Figs and HazelnutsRecipes
This is a delicate, flavor-packed, nutrient-rich muffin that takes advantage of the grinding power of the food processor, but doesn’t take away from the tender crumb of a muffin. With chunks of figs, hazelnuts, and oats, this muffin passes for breakfast, but nothing beats it warm out of the oven with a pat of butter.

Recipe: Muffin-Tin Monkey Breads, 3 WaysRecipes
It makes me sad how much of my life was spent “hating” monkey bread. It was an unfounded loathing, solely rooted in my own lack of understanding of how glorious such a thing could be. What is there, after all, to hate about buttery, cakey, cinnamon-sugar bread? Absolutely nothing, that’s what. There’s even less to hate when it’s served up in three single-serving sized flavors.

Recipe: Savory Radish and Goat Cheese MuffinsRecipes
A handful of years ago, I popped into a cafe to grab a quick lunch and was delighted to discover savory muffins on the menu. Since then I’ve made savory muffins a part of my baking repertoire. This version of a savory muffin takes advantage of one of spring’s most abundant (and certainly most beautiful) vegetables, radishes, and pairs them with goat cheese for a peppery, tangy twist. This recipe makes a muffin that’s buttery and hearty, with a soft texture and a light crumb.

Recipe: Olive Oil Carrot MuffinsRecipes
We love a good muffin for its simplicity. In fact, a good muffin should deliver far more than the effort you put into it, and these oat- and raisin-studded carrot muffins can claim that fame. This batter has applesauce and grated carrots for moisture, spices for flavor, and raisins for pops of sweetness (although if you’re a raisin-hater, chopped dates are a delicious substitute).
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Double Chocolate MuffinsRecipes
There’s probably a fine line between what makes something a cupcake rather than a muffin. For me, a muffin has a nice domed top, doesn’t have frosting, and shouldn’t give me a sugar rush during breakfast. These rich chocolate muffins have a delicious double dose of chocolate, but they also contain a lot of ingredients I eat at breakfast anyway, like milk, eggs, and our secret — Greek yogurt, which adds tenderness and protein.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Orange and Strawberry MuffinsRecipes
These are not cupcakes dressed up in muffin’s clothing. That generous drizzle of orange glaze over the top is definitely a treat, so if you’re having these first thing in the morning consider them the baked good that replaces that pastry you usually pick up with a cup a coffee. It’s not sugar and spice, though! A mix of whole-wheat and all-purpose flour leaves these orange- and vanilla-scented muffins with nutty undertones and a hearty texture that makes them feel wholesome.

It’s hard to dispute the fact that banana muffins are irresistible all on their own. They hardly need a helping hand, but you should give them one anyway. When you stir a handful of chocolate chips into the batter and top each muffin with lots of buttery, cinnamon-spiced crumb topping, you’ll pull a pan of banana crumb muffins from the oven that rival anything you’d buy at the bakery.

How To Make Bakery-Style Crumb MuffinsRecipes
My very first job when I was in high school was at a bakery down the street from where I grew up. In the midst of boxing up cakes, slicing bread, and slinging donuts on Saturday mornings, I developed a deep love affair with crumb cake that opened my eyes to a world way beyond Entenmann’s. The buttery, plush dough, the fat crumbs, and powdered sugar were pure bliss. This is a crumb cake meets muffin combo that’s directly inspired by the classic bakery breakfast cake.

Does “breakfast for dinner” mean eggs or pancakes for you? I recently had a dinner revelation about breakfast baked goods: Muffins are just as delicious at 6 p.m. as they are at 7 a.m. If you’re feeling doubtful about Monday-night dinner muffins, let me tell you about these beauties. They are full of sweet potato, nutty Parmesan cheese, and fresh herbs. They’re crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and perfect with a swipe of butter.
