Rise and shine! Instead of buying muffins at your local coffee shop or only indulging in them as a special treat on the weekend, we advocate for enjoying the delicious baked good any day of the week. If you're on board with that plan, you'll be pleased to know we have 24 tasty recipes to suit any mood or occasion. We're sharing all of the classics&mdashblueberry, chocolate chip, and banana&mdashas well as seasonal specialties and a few healthier varieties, such as the Morning Glory Muffins you see here.

Our blueberry muffin recipe is a textbook example of the perfect bake&mdashit's a sweet but not-too-sweet muffin with a light cakey texture that is packed with two cups of fresh blueberries. While bakery-style blueberry muffins are often topped with a coarse sanding sugar for crunch and sweetness, we've taken it to the next level with a brown sugar and cinnamon crumb topping. When baking a batch of muffins for breakfast, consider giving the little quick breads a seasonal spin. In summer, is there anything more delicious than Raspberry Muffins or Peach Muffins? In fall, bake Apple-Oatmeal Muffins or go with Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins, a unique treat that hits the sweet spot between two of our favorite breakfast treats.

There's plenty of healthy muffin recipes here as well. Take these Gluten-Free Banana-Walnut Muffins for example. Mashed bananas offer plenty of potassium and brown rice flour is high in protein. For a supercharged breakfast, make our Quinoa Muffins. Still can't decide which muffin to bake? Our recipe for Better-Than-Basic Muffins comes with lots of options, so you can prepare chocolate chip, bran-raisin, and corn muffins from one easy batter.

If you ask us, your daily breakfast (or snack) just got a whole lot more delicious.

A couple of weeks ago, I made breakfast for a houseful of girls who were staying with friends for a discipleship weekend our church was putting on. I made these for Sunday breakfast. I wanted something that could be warmed up easily so the hostess would not have tons of preparation work to do on Sunday morning while trying to get 12 girls ready to transport to church by 9 a.m.

I served these muffins along with Raspberry Lemon Streusel Muffins, but they also warmed up the leftover Sausage Gravy and Biscuits from the day before along with the leftover Pecan Cranberry Muffins. They were such a big hit. Plus, since Debra, the hostess, has Celiac Disease she was able to enjoy a gluten free breakfast.

Listen guys, these muffins are a must try! They will make a spectacular addition to your holiday menu. If you want a bacon and egg breakfast, make up a batch of Breakfast Muffins and watch them disappear.

Breakfast Muffins are so delectable.

These make a great breakfast for buffets, special occasion breakfasts, or for the holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving.

Breakfast Muffins are so scrumptious that I could eat four or five of them at once!

I used these ingredients plus red and orange bell peppers and parsley.

For the hashbrown crust, mix hash brown potatoes, egg, half the salt and the pepper, olive oil and 1 cup of cheese.

Stir to combine.

Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Press hash brown mixture evenly in 24 different muffin tins. Sprinkle each one with parsley. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs.

To eggs, add remaining cheese, cooked bacon pieces, remaining half of the salt and pepper, red and orange bell pepper and milk or cream.

Stir to combine.

Pour egg mixture evenly into each hash brown crust. Sprinkle each egg with additional parsley, salt and pepper.

Bake at 400 an additional 10-15 minutes or until eggs are cooked thoroughly.

Serve Breakfast Muffins with your favorite sides.

I served Breakfast Muffins with Raspberry Lemon Streusel Muffins.

These muffins are so festive and beautiful. So great for the holidays.


  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Servings: 1
  • Easy

Step 1

Wash and cut blackberries in half. Add blackberries and gently fold them into the batter.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine flour, butter, sugar, and salt with your hands.

Step 3

Pour the batter in your favorite mug. After pouring batter into mug, sprinkle crumble mixture on top. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, adding time until completely done. Allow to cool and enjoy your homemade mug muffin.


Pear-Cardamom Muffins

These pear-cardamom muffins are as elegant as they are easy. Even with the added step of creaming the butter and sugar, the batter still comes together in about six minutes. We reach for buttermilk to keep the crumb moist and offset some of the earthy notes. Since the cardamom can be quite strong, we add a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg to help balance out the flavors. The sweet, fruity, and lightly spiced muffins pair especially well with a cup of tea.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a muffin tin.

Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain off any excess grease. Divide the sausage between the greased muffin cups.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, baking mix, half and half, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage, filling the muffin cups 3/4ths full. Sprinkle each muffin with some of the grated cheese.

Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until set. Serve hot.

Variation: Add chopped onions, green bell peppers, mushrooms to the sausage mixture while browning. You can also use bacon or ham in place of the sausage.
