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!

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Blackberry Gingerbread Muffins

Usually I think of making gingerbread during the winter holidays, but here’s a summer-ized version in muffin form! Fresh blackberries make these muffins moist and of course the ginger and molasses give these muffins that great gingerbread taste. I had clipped this recipe from an old issue of Victoria magazine and modified it slightly. The original recipe was supposed to have made 18 muffins; I added in extra blackberries, and came up with 24 to 26 muffins, or 24 muffins and 1 mini-loaf. Making the mini-loaf works out great because you can bake it right along with your muffins–it will just need about 5 to 10 minutes extra baking time.

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.
