There’s something for every taste on this list!

Mixed Berry Crumble Muffins

Hearty, wholesome & flavorful with a crumbly buttery topping — this is what muffin dreams are made of! While these muffins were originally inspired by fresh summer berries, they can be made using either fresh or frozen berries making them perfect for all year round.

The inside is soft and tender with oats and whole wheat pastry flour. If you’re gluten-free or prefer other flours, substitutions can easily be made, too!

Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate chip muffins made in a smaller size for snacking, grab-and-go bites, or as a yummy addition to breakfast or lunch. They’re made with whole grains, Greek yogurt and dark chocolate chips for a healthier take on the classic.

Better yet, these are totally freezer friendly! Check out the blog post for muffin-making tips and how to make them in a regular size, too!

Sweet Potato Muffins with Graham Cracker Crumble

It’s always a win when a veggie meets a muffin for the perfect match. While these sweet potato muffins definitely scream fall and taste like the holidays, you may find yourself making them in the spring and summer after you try them.

They’re lightly sweetened, moist, and finished with a graham cracker crumble topping. And if you happen to be a pumpkin spice fan, you’ll be happy to know it’s a part of this recipe, too! 🙂
