Healthy Muffin Recipes

I love a good muffin for breakfast in the winter! They are so easy to make and they can be enjoyed by themselves or alongside a yummy smoothie or warm drink like coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

—Keep some of this yummy Homemade Cappuccino Mix on hand so you can enjoy a cup with your morning muffin on cold days.

Muffins are also very easy to freeze! While you have all the ingredients out to make one a batch, you can easily make a second batch by doubling the recipe so that you can put half of them in the freezer.

Freezing Muffins

The easiest way to freeze muffins for later is to pre-bake them first. Have them totally finished and let them cool. Then, place in a zippered freezer bag (or a nice stackable container for the freezer if you have one!) and label them with the date that you made them. When you are ready to eat them, just remove the bag from the freezer a day in advance and let the muffins thaw in your fridge. They should be good to go by the next morning and you have breakfast already prepared!

  1. What a great roundup – the Savory Breakfast Muffins look yummy! I love to bake several batches of muffins and freeze them. Then I can quickly pop them into lunchboxes, take them on the road for snacks, and of course eat them for breakfast.

  2. I am the worst cook but I would be down with eating any of these. especially if someone else wants to make them

  3. Those breakfast muffins look especially amazing. Seriously delicious!!!! I think I’d like to have every kind though. 🙂

  4. Yum!!! These look wonderful. In my head because its called a muffin and not cake, it must be healthier!! 😉

  5. I am really enjoying reading about all these things you have written. I didn’t know there were so many uses for hydrogen peroxide. Your muffins sounds delicious and I can hardly wait to try them. I have heard of witch hazel but I have no idea what it is used for. That is the next thing I will check on. Keep up the good work Merissa. God bless you!

  6. I am going to try these. Our mornings are hurried and muffins would be ideal in the hand at the bus stop or in the car on the way to work.

  7. This is an excellent round up of healthy muffin recipes. Mmmmm, I can’t wait to try many of these recipes. Yum!

  8. Hi Merissa,

    Okay, healthy muffins has to be an oxymoron – correct? You mean to tell me that my chocolate chip muffins aren’t healthy? Just kidding 🙂

    I recently tried Zucchini Muffins for the first time. I was really surprised to see my kids enjoying them -especially since they are not zucchini fans!

    Thank you so much for sharing these 25 Healthy Muffin recipes with us. Muffins are such a great breakfast at my home because I can make them ahead while the kids are asleep! (Much faster than pancakes!)

    Thanks again

  15. I love your recipes. They are simple and thrifty and something most families will eat. And the bonus is, your recipes are printable. I think I will try several of these muffins.

  16. Don’t suppose you have a version for the “french toast muffins” that Costco sells, very occasionally – I’ve been hunting for one, but not much luck so far. I would really like to be able to make them smaller, and maybe be able to have them more than one month out of a year (they so rarely have them). I plan to try a few of these.

  17. Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday! You’ve inspired me to bake some muffins for my kids.
