Mix It Up with Muffins
Just about everyone loves a muffin. Muffins have come a long way as far as creativity is concerned. There are breakfast muffins, muffins for lunch packed with yummy ingredients like sausage, egg, and cheese, high fiber muffins and the yummiest of all, dessert muffins.
Muffins are so versatile you can even make muffins out of pancake batter. Mix it up with chocolate chips, blueberries, strawberries, bananas or anything your heart desires. Just mix up your favorite pancake batter mix and throw it in your lined muffins pans. Before you know it, you have a tray of muffins that tastes like your favorite pancake.
The great thing about muffins is that you can mix almost anything into the batter from super healthy to sinfully delectable. For example, if you are in need of more fiber, you can add ingredients that include fiber into your muffin mix:
- Bran cereal
- Oat, wheat or corn bran
- Millers bran
- Wheat germ
- Rolled oats
- Whole wheat flour
- Nuts and seeds
If, on the other hand, you are seeking to make a batch of breakfast muffins, you can add in just about anything your heart desires in any combination. Consider these mix-ins:
- Chopped orange slices
- Chocolate chips
- Scrambled eggs and sausage or ham
Perhaps you are on a more holistic diet and seek to include vegetables. How about:
- Carrot cake muffins
- Beetroot and chocolate muffins
- Zucchini muffins
- Apple, banana, broccoli and zucchini muffins
- Whole wheat, zucchini, carrot and walnut muffins
- Blueberry corn muffins
- Wheat bran, cranberry and blueberry muffins
- Oat, raisin, carrot and banana muffins
It’s a great idea to think first what kind of muffins fit into your lifestyle. If your household craves sweets, you can make anything from a plain and simple chocolate chip muffin to a delicious s’mores muffin.
You can also match your muffin mixes to whatever season you are in at the moment. For example, you may wish to create delectable pumpkin or apple cranberry muffins for the fall or sugar cookie recipe muffins for winter. In springtime, lemon poppy muffins are a perfect fit, and for summer, any delicious handpicked fruit will do. Imagine going to the farm and picking your own peaches and mixing them up in a batch of morning muffins.
If you need to incorporate more seeds into your life such as pumpkin, sunflower, or poppy find different ways to throw them into your muffins. Think seasonal, think health and nutritional needs, and think delectable.
Whether you’re looking for whole grains, have a sweet tooth, or simply want a quick and easy breakfast, there are an endless amount of combinations of fruits, nuts, seeds, sweets and grains that can make the perfect muffin for you and your family.
