Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins

Pumpkin and cranberry are two great flavors to enjoy for the holidays! I really like these Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins because they have dried cranberries, golden raisins, chopped pecans, and spices mixed in the batter—they just seem perfect for this time of year! You don’t really need a glaze for these, since they’re sweet enough on their own, but I’ve included a recipe for Cream Cheese Icing that you can spread or drizzle over these muffins if you like!

Pumpkin Spice Cornbread

If you’re a cornbread-lover, take note: this cornbread is flavored with pumpkin puree and slightly sweetened with pure maple syrup—perfect for fall and winter! The pumpkin puree makes this Pumpkin Spice Cornbread nice and moist, and cinnamon and nutmeg add that rich spice flavor we love so much in our autumn and winter baked goods! And last but not least, maple syrup is stirred in the batter for just the right hint of maple flavor and sweetness! It’s also quick and easy to make, since a corn muffin mix is used in the batter, so that cuts down on prep time!

Maple-Oat Muffins

Breakfast just seems more like breakfast when maple syrup is involved! And in the fall and winter seasons, I like to use maple syrup in my recipes. These Maple-Oat Muffins have pure maple syrup in them and oatmeal is also an ingredient, so I like to think they’re a little healthy, too! 🙂

Banana Oat Muffins with Maple Syrup

I always seem to have ripe bananas in the kitchen and these muffins are a wonderful way to use them! These aren’t super-sweet muffins, but they’re sweetened with some brown sugar in the batter and a drizzle of maple syrup on top after baking, which makes them a great muffin for fall! The batter has some healthy ingredients mixed in, like Greek yogurt to make them moist, canola oil or light olive oil, and quick-cooking oats. Cinnamon and nutmeg give these muffins a light spice flavor and the maple syrup drizzle adds the perfect amount of sweetness on top! And for any maple syrup overflow that drizzles onto your plate, you can dip your muffin in it as you’re eating it, which is a yummy thing to do!

Peach Streusel Muffins

Since peaches are one of my favorite fruits, I always look forward to peach season and making all kinds of peachy treats—like these Peach Streusel Muffins! This recipe is adapted from one I found at A Few Short Cuts. I changed it up by using canola oil instead of vegetable oil, unbleached flour instead of white flour, and a little less butter in the streusel mixture to make the streusel more crumbly. Also, I used a little more chopped peaches in the batter, because you can never go wrong with that! 🙂
