They're as versatile as pancakes, but you don't have to be a pro at handling the frying pan for them. Muffins make everything easy and fun, so we bet you prepare them at home now more often than you thought you would. To motivate you to experiment more with your favorite sweets, we created a list of ten recipes that are so attractive you'll have to try them at home!

10. Coffee Cake Muffins

Just look at all the positive comments – everyone's obsessed with this recipe!

Coffee enthusiasts, we're inviting you to try one of the most fabulous recipes out there – they're muffins, and they contain coffee! You obviously aren't required to be a cooking master for this recipe or go to Starbucks to get a cup of your favorite beverage. The coffee you have at home will be enough - just as much as you put into a regular coffee cake!

To make this experience even more breathtaking, add cinnamon and sugar as a decorative glaze. It won't only moisturize your muffins and make them feel crunchy – muffins glazed like this go so well with coffee, which is your base in this case! You can serve these muffins as a dessert together with coffee.

9. Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins

Mini muffins are always addictive!

Since we already mentioned cinnamon, it's an ingredient that can do the job on its own. Sometimes it's enough to add cinnamon and have the taste you wish to get! These look very similar to dumplings, and they're made likewise, so fantastic taste is required. If you like mini muffins, this recipe does it the best!

Moreover, these might be the easiest to make compared to all the other tastes on the list. You won't spend too much time preparing them, and you'll eat them as fast since they're perfect for a quick bite in the early morning. Furthermore, you probably already have everything you need to prepare them at home, so there's no need to shop for hours for these!

8. Lemon Crumb Muffins

These came straight out from the bakery!

As the list goes on, you'll notice various fruits here, mainly because they're a great addition to almost all the pastries. Muffins aren't an exception, so you can try to add many fruits to the mixture. Lemons are the most refreshing and the healthiest among them, so it makes us happy that they are a part of some fantastic recipes!

In conclusion, even though muffins aren't too healthy in general, it's great that you can eat them with lemons and get that moist feeling. These muffins have the moist lemon base, the crumb topping, and the sticky lemon glaze, so you'll have a real taste of lemons from top to bottom. The topping makes it even better!

7. Chocolate Muffins

The whole family will love this sweet treat!

To take a break from fruits, we'll introduce something basic but quite delicious. You'll have nothing against a simple recipe if it contains loads of chocolate, we guess! If you're a massive cocoa powder fan, these are perfect for you – you can even combine them with chocolate chips!

Moreover, of course, you can add anything you wish to this recipe, so you can use it as a base. However, if you're a fan of more uncomplicated flavors, this one will already do! They can be moisty, crunchy, with a bit of chocolate, or even a double dose. Play with the ingredients as much as you wish!

6. Banana Muffins

Luckily, this recipe doesn't only give you bananas – it also shows the way that makes muffins moist!

Even though banana doesn't look that manageable, it fits so well in many sweets you like. Hence, pancakes with Nutella or any other chocolate usually go hand in hand with them. You can make a regular mixture for muffins with bananas, but chocolate muffins would do even greater. Chocolate is simply the banana's best friend!

Luckily, these muffins aren't even too sweet since the banana has that strong flavor that makes it all perfect, even without a particular topping. Of course, you can adjust the topping the way you wish since bananas don't require particular treatment.

5. Applesauce Muffins

These are lower in fats than the usual muffins

Some of our recommendations are loaded with unhealthy ingredients, indeed. That's how pastries are, and that's why many people avoid them. Still, we promise that this one won't make you feel guilty. Applesauce muffins are the healthiest option ever, and they'll be all you need when you have to steer clear of "strong" sweets!

Luckily, some recipes say that applesauce muffins work the best with whole wheat flour, which adds to our "healthy" theory. You'll need some oats, eggs, and vanilla to make them even better. Use these muffins as a regular snack whenever you wish since they won't affect your health negatively!

4. Moist Muffins

Blueberry muffins are usually moist as well

Whatever flavor you put into a muffin, there's always the same question – how to make them moist. And not only moist but possibly fluffy at the same time. Is that possible? Absolutely, as you just need a proper recipe and some tips! After all, why would your muffins be dry when there are tips all over the Internet?

For example, did you know that adding some fat helps your muffins increase their moisture? If you'd like to fix the problem with a sweetener, even honey, sour cream, and buttermilk can help. Moreover, you should avoid high-fiber ingredients because they usually make pastries more crunchy than soft. 

3. Blueberry Muffins

You'll make these quickly – and eat them even quicker!

Finally, our previous recommendation leads us to one of the most popular and beloved versions of muffins – the blueberry ones! Blueberries are so helpful that we can't imagine any list of pancakes, cupcakes, or muffins without them. They work as good as chocolate chips, and they make the best breakfast ever!

Moreover, blueberries are natural antioxidants and aren't loaded with sugar, so they'll even get you a bit of the sour taste. This recipe combines healthy habits and the best mixtures of muffins because blueberry muffins are usually made very moist and fluffy. We see no reason to skip these while you're exploring your options for homemade pastries!

2. Chocolate and Strawberry Muffins

These look way too good to be genuine – and they taste like that!

Let us put this straight – strawberries are the most superior fruit in this world. They make everything so tasty and sweet, yet they have a low glycemic index and don't affect your health. Moreover, they go so perfect with chocolate that you'll want to make that mix every day for breakfast and any meal!

Luckily, assorted muffins mix chocolate and strawberries, and they might be your next favorites. If you're a fan of "smoother" versions, go for blueberries that we already recommended. Still, if you'd like a "strong" taste, chocolate and strawberries do the job way better.

1. Chocolate Chip Muffins

The ultimate favorite is obviously that "chip" taste in your mouth

If the chocolate glaze is way too sweet for you and you'd still want to taste a bit of chocolate anyway, why wouldn't you put its small parts into the mixture? Once you've tried chocolate chips, you'll never wish to make any other version of muffins because these have enough of everything you need!

Moreover, chocolate chips are so beloved because of the way they're crunchy but still go so well with the smooth blend you make for muffins. These are so versatile that they can go great with bananas or any other fruit you can put in muffins. However, they're still amazing even with chocolate chips only!

After all, since muffins give you a lot of space, feel free to experiment. You can play on your own even without these recipes. Surprise your family and friends after a long day, and serve some different versions every time. Encourage them to do the same to you. Share muffins, and be creative!
