Calling all blueberry-lovers! Whenever I want to change things up from my classic go-to muffins, these scones are my favorite alternative. They make blueberries the star, and work with fresh of frozen fruit — just be sure the berries aren't too small.
These are the muffins you'll want to whip up as soon as you can get your hands on a carton of strawberries. 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.
This is a crumb cake-meets-muffin combo inspired by the classic bakery breakfast cake. And like their inspiration, these muffins have a fine, delicate crumb with a buttery, vanilla flavor and a thick topping of sweet crumble.
These sweet vegan muffins are a wholesome treat at its finest. They're just sweet enough, thanks to the trio of applesauce, raisins, and shredded carrot, and stirred up with whole-wheat flour and oats for a texture that's equal parts fluffy and hearty.
Yes, there's a double dose of chocolate, but you'll also find a generous scoop of Greek yogurt here. These muffins fall decidedly in the okay-for-breakfast category.
Before mixing up this hearty muffin batter, I always take a few minutes to soak the raisins in warm apple juice to guarantee they're soft, tender, and extra plump.
Like many scones, this lemony version freezes like a dream. Make the dough now, then bake them straight from the freezer anytime you want one. Just be sure to hold off on the glaze until after baking.
These floral fruit scones aren't just beautiful and delicious — they're also a cinch to pull together with the help of your food processor.
This recipe swaps buttermilk with a can of coconut milk from the pantry and the results are nothing short of delicious.
If you haven't been finishing your scones with a brown sugar topping, this strawberry and cream number will change all that.
