Strawberry Banana Muffins

Bananas and fresh strawberries make a great combination in this summery muffin! They’re so moist and full of delicious chunks of fresh strawberries. I love how the sprinkling of coarse sugar gives these muffin tops a little sparkle and crunchiness, too! I just did a light sprinkling, but you can do a heavier sprinkle if you want a real sugary top.

Carrot Spice Muffins

Carrot-themed recipes remind me of springtime and Easter—maybe because I tend to see a lot of product packaging with bunnies and carrots this time of year!

Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

I don’t have a veggie garden of my own this summer, but friends and coworkers have been so nice to share from their gardens with me! That’s how I ended up with some zucchini. Since I also had fresh blueberries just waiting to be used, I decided to make these muffins that I first made several years ago. The zucchini and blueberries make these muffins really moist and the cinnamon gives them a great flavor. If you like, you can top the muffins with a homemade cream cheese frosting and fresh blueberries (you can use fresh or frozen blueberries in the batter). You can also try substituting blackberries, raspberries, or chopped strawberries for the blueberries. Continue reading

Orange-Almond Muffins

Summer is the perfect time for making citrus-flavored muffins, like these Orange-Almond Muffins! They have a great orange flavor, and sliced almonds give them a light, nutty taste. They’re good without any toppings, but if you’re making these muffins for a brunch or tea, you may want to fancy them up a bit with the Simple Orange Glaze and a few other toppings! Continue reading
