Morning Glory Muffins

These are one of Chris’ favourite type of muffin. They are packed full of goodness, fresh carrot, freshly grated apple dates, coconut, apple sauce, walnuts…. just a bunch of yum lol!

It takes a little bit of extra time because you have to grate the carrots and apples, and chop the walnuts, but it is well worth the little bit of time!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Walnut Muffins

A different, healthy take on Pumpkin muffins… lots of flavour in a few bites (I made them in my mini muffin pan lol). I made the muffin batter and before baking I sprinkled some of the cinnamon sugar I had leftover from my Pumpkin Donuts to give it just that little bit of extra flavour, but you can leave that out if you like.

As with the Pumpkin Donuts I made the same day, not all of the muffins even made it to the plate before they were being devoured lol!

I used oatmeal in place of some of the flour in these muffins and put the oatmeal through my food processor on grind until it was almost a flour but still a bit “grainy,” almost a graham crumb type texture. With some of the wonderful fall spices, maple syrup and some walnuts, these are delicious tasting, easy to make muffins!!!

Cranberry Bran Buds Muffins

A few weeks ago I received a coupon in the mail for a free box of All Bran Buds cereal. While I love anything bran, I didn’t feel like just eating it as cereal, so I made muffins. They were going to be raisin bran muffins but I either forgot I was out of raisins or Dillon ate them lol. Thankfully I knew I had a partial bag of frozen cranberries, so I added them instead.

These muffins are nice and moist, not dry like some bran muffins can be. And they freeze really well. I like to keep a few things in the freezer ready to pop in lunch boxes on the off chance I don’t feel like baking one week!

Pumpkin Muffins

Am I jumping ahead to fall recipes too early?  Probably… but it’s pumpkin!  And who says we can only eat pumpkin treats in fall or winter?  Not me, so when I was walking through the grocery store with Dillon on Friday and saw a can of pumpkin puree, I just had to grab it and make something pumpkin!

Years and years…. and years ago… I won a baking contest with this recipe.  I made it as a loaf cake for the contest but the flavour is the same!

These muffins are lightly spiced, soft and delicious!

Fruit “Filled” Muffins (Copycat “Fruit Explosion Muffins”)

I have a favourite muffin I get whenever I am at a certain coffee shop.  They do not call it fruit filled muffins, it has “explosion” in the name.

When I was making some lunch box treats the other day I thought I would like to try making my own version of these muffins so we can have them more often.  While mine aren’t as “pretty and perfect” looking as this certain coffee shop, the taste is just about bang on!

Wheat Germ Berry Muffins

Today I decided I wanted some muffins.  For some reason I couldn’t get the thought of Tim Horton’s Fruit Explosion muffins out of my head, so they had to have berries in them.

I found I had half a bag of frozen mixed berries which worked out perfectly for what I wanted!  I ended up making a moist, delicious muffin with wheat germ, oatmeal, honey, cinnamon and of course… berries!

These passed the “Dillon Taste Test,” and he can be fussy as you know what, so I think they are a success!

I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as we are!
