Blueberry Coconut Muffins

This week James’ grandparents flew to Hawaii to celebrate their 55th (!!) wedding anniversary! To get that Aloha! mood started, I made these delightfully moist muffins for them for their plane ride. Luckily, we got to keep a few for ourselves! Ingredients Source: Slightly adapted from Bob’s Red Mill 1-1/2 cups flour 3/4 cup Sugar…

Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

I know it’s December and it seems like pumpkin is so passé and so November, but pop these in the oven ASAP! These muffins are moist, homey and just plain delicious. The markets still have plenty of pumpkin puree and cranberries on their shelves. They would be perfect for all those guests coming in and…

Pumpkin Applesauce Muffins

The can of pumpkin puree stared at me from the back of the pantry. It just sat there waiting patiently to be made into something. Anything! For months I glanced over it to the beans for a cassoulet; the honey for some oatmeal bars; the pine nuts for a butternut squash dish. Finally, while walking…

Fruit and Nut Oatmeal Muffins

Not too sweet, not too big, just right for a morning boost. As much as I adore granola bars for breakfast, it’s nice to mix it up with some healthy-tasting muffins.

I would suggest increasing the amount of ground espresso in the muffins by a teaspoon or two to really taste that coffee flavor…

Oatmeal Blueberry Applesauce Muffins

I like to make muffins or quick breads on the weekends so I have a tasty breakfast the rest of the week. Plus, since I’m not a big eater as soon as I wake up, muffins are perfect to put in a ziploc, head to work and eat when I’m ready. So dig in when…

Morning Glory Muffins – Passover Style

I have to admit I was skeptical about this recipe as I put it together. I had never used matzo meal (flour that’s kosher for Passover) before in baking, but since it’s Passover I didn’t have much of a choice. So I had one this morning. Then I had two. Then I had to tell…
