“The simplest variations are the ones that require no change in the basic muffin directions, like adding chocolate chips, nuts or dried fruits,” said Martha White Baking Expert Linda Carman. “Topping with chopped nuts, streusel or a powdered sugar glaze is fun and easy, too.”

Wake Up and Smell the Muffins

If getting started in the morning is sometimes difficult, ease your family into the back-to-school routine with warm, comforting muffins for breakfast. Banana Nut Oatmeal Muffins are full of wholesome goodness by simply adding your family’s favorite dried fruit, seeds, nuts or oats to the basic banana nut muffin batter.

Take a Muffin Break

It’s time for a break when school is back in session. Invite a friend or neighbor over for coffee and a visit. For a treat, bake up a batch of Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins. An easy-to-make cream cheese mixture spooned on top of the muffin batter creates delectably moist muffins crowned with cheesecake.
