PIN Healthy Muffin Recipes
Honestly, muffins are one of my most favorite things.
But, real question: do you eat muffins from the bottom up so you save the top last? I sure do and I personally feel like it is the only way you should eat a muffin.
Muffins are Versatile
Muffins are great for breakfast, with a side of oven baked eggs or breakfast casserole to add a little protein boost, or you can have one for a snack. Slather it with a little almond butter for some healthy fats to keep you full until your next meal and you are good to go!
Are Muffins Healthy?
You guys know that I don’t love labeling foods as “healthy” vs “unhealthy” but like to focus more on food that is nutrient dense most of the time. Muffins from the grocery store are typically not very nutrient dense and “healthy” which is why I thought you might need some easy healthy muffins!
How to Make Healthy Muffins
When we’re looking to make some healthy muffin recipes, there are some easy go-to kind swaps that you can make to recipes.
Flour – instead of using all-purpose flour, a healthier change up would be whole-wheat flour, almond flour, coconut flour or oat flour! All these flours are more natural, have some fiber content and a higher protein content!
Sugar – instead of using cane sugar, you can use coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup or even a sugar-free sweetener like monkfruit ot stevia. You must be careful with sugar free sweeteners though, as they take away some moistness from muffins!
Oil – You can swap some oil in healthy muffin recipes for applesauce, pumpkin or, my favorite, Greek yogurt for a little protein boost.
Typical Muffin Ingredients
When it comes to making muffins, there are some ingredients that you always need to have on hand:
- Baking powder/soda
- Oil or one of the oil swaps
Having these ingredients as your pantry staples will ensure that 9 times out of 10, you’ll be able to make a muffin recipe!
How to Make Domed Muffins
Just because these healthy muffins are homemade, doesn’t mean they need to be flat. There are two secrets to making domed muffin tops like in your favorite bakery:
- Let the dough rest for 1 hour – cover your batter and refrigerate for one hour before making. This allows the baking powder time to do its thing and the batter to thicken up which causes it to rise easier!
- Bake at a high temperature for the first 5 minutes – I bake my muffins at 450 degrees for the first 5 minutes, then down to 375 degrees for the last 15-20. The initial high heat causes a reaction in the baking powder and makes the top of the muffins rise nice and tall!
Now that you are in the know, let’s get onto the healthy muffin recipes!
