Ready to take out your baking tray and try out some new and interesting recipes? The fun thing about food is the fact that it’s been a constant in our lives since the beginning the time, yet it continues to evolve at the same time as we do. So, just when we thought there was no way to add a new twist to a recipe as classical as muffins, we were surprised. If you’d like to surprise your beloved ones with a tray of freshly baked delights drizzled with some novelty, then follow one of these unique muffin recipes.
#1 Baked French Toast Muffins
French toast is wonderful. Muffins are wonderful. Combine these two and you might just gain enough power to take down the government (you’ve heard it here first, folks). The French toast muffin is a wonder guaranteed to soothe your taste buds with its cinnamon-y enthrallment and the soft-crusty combination brought by the baked toast cubes topping the muffins.
#2 Zucchini Apple Mini Muffins
There’s an unwritten rule that dictates that adding apple to any recipe is pretty much guaranteed to improve it. This may be the case here too, there’s no denying it, but what about the other half of this suspiciously intriguing duo? Zucchini isn’t traditionally used as an ingredient for deserts, but the right combinations and a steady hand when stirring the batter will bring to your table a surprising mix.
#3 Almond Poppy Seed Muffins
This recipe manages to combine the traditional way of baking muffins with the genius simplicity that comes from a combination which can completely change the taste of a product. Almond is known to be a typically strong taste that bares a certain aroma you can easily recognize. Combined with poppy seeds, it creates a blend that will make you feel like you’ve reinvented muffins completely!
#4 Cream Cheese Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chips Muffin
The name is a mouthful, but it’s as complex as it sounds. This recipe keeps the edges of the traditional formula, but changes things up a little bit by throwing into the composition some creamy cheese. As a bonus, you get to taste the wondrous combination of peanut butter and chocolate chips.
#5 Peach Yogurt Muffins
Peach muffins, in general, aren’t something we get to hear about or taste very often to begin with, much less muffins with peach yogurt in the composition. However, this novel combination manages to bring a certain lightness to these baked delights that’s perfectly topped by the peachy flavor.
#6 Pumpkin Spice Latte Nutella Muffins
And at number six, we get a deadly combination between every DIY-er’s favorite two flavors. Take the taste of the intoxicating PSL and combine it with the chocolate delight that’s the famed Nutella and you’ll earn yourself some muffins that represent a true journey of the senses.
#7 Caramel Macchiato Chocolate Muffins
We’ve decided to stick with the coffee theme, and we’ve included caramel macchiato into the mix too. While in the case of the PSL muffins you can see a fantastic duo, in the case of our tasty delights you can to enjoy the best that a caramel macchiato has to offer – the dulling flavor of caramel and a pinch of coffee taste to top it all.
#8 Apple Cherry Pear Almond Muffins
Putting the pumpkin spice aside, here is a recipe that was basically created to be made during the winter. As amazing as these muffins sound, we must warn you about the dangers that come with it. Take a bite and you will find yourself rudely attacked from all corners by the explosion of flavors.
#9 Coffee Crumb Muffins
To nibble at a muffin that’s primarily made with a particular ingredient and that has a slight coffee-esque undertone is one thing, but to enjoy a fully-fledged coffee muffin is completely another. It’s the perfect bakery good for those who want to quickly combine their morning coffee and muffin.
#10 Paleo Apple-Cinnamon Muffins
We love some good old apple-cinnamon combos, but what do we do if we want to spice it up a bit? We make it paleo, of course! This is the ideal recipe for those who wish to indulge in the sweet marvels of baking without having to feel too guilty about it depositing on their hips.
