Muffins are such an easy go-to. In the case of these muffins, they are not only easy and delicious but healthy, too. There are multiple grains, nuts, and fruit, and it's really a fun recipe to throw together.

Do you pinch off pieces of your muffin and pop them in your mouth? If I haven't smeared them with dairy-free butter, that's my habit. Sipping tea or coffee and pinching off pieces of muffins.

Really! Do you do that? It's relaxing. I almost always eat them plain, so they are very pinchable. Muffins are so good, and these have a really good texture, too.

Another question. Every once in a while, do you find yourself running late, and you haven't had breakfast yet? Grab a muffin. And wouldn't that be nice if it was a healthier one?

How to Make Muffins at Home

  • It iseasy!
  • It's necessary to have muffin tins for these breakfast muffins enough for 12 muffins.
  • Paper cups come in very handy, especially if you're not sure of the recipe yet. Or if the tin is old and blackened or if you want to use as little 'grease as possible' or make them prettier with a certain color paper cup.
  • Round up all of your ingredients. Sometimes, there are quite a few if adding fruit and spices.
  • Get the equipment together. Including a mixer or large, sturdy wooden spoon, measuring cups and spoons, a paring knife, and a large bowl.
  • Follow the recipe exactly. Baking can be tricky if you go off track.

Can Breakfast Muffins Be Frozen?

  • Most definitely!
  • After they have cooled, you may freeze them using any of the methods shown in my article How to Prepare Food for the Freezer.
  • They defrost quickly, so it doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal mixed with 2 ½ tablespoons water - this is the egg substitute

  • ½ cup bran cereal - ground coarsely
  • ½ cup finely ground bran cereal
  • ½ cup quick cooking oats

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • cup dairy-free butter, melted and cooled a bit
  • 1 cup 1 apple - whatever the measurement turns out to be - granny smith apple, peeled and cut chunks (this will go into a food processor later. Do not peel the apple until right before using because it will turn brown - a bit.


  • Mix the flaxseed meal and water and set aside.

  • Put muffin paper liners in 12 muffin cups.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, both bran cereals, oats, cornmeal, sugar, walnuts, raisins, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

  • Pour this liquid mixture into the large bowl that is holding all the dry ingredients. Stir well until just combined.

  • Spoon the batter into each muffin cup.The batter will pretty much be to the top of the muffin cups.

  • Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean.

  • Transfer muffins to a rack and let cool.



After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article How to Prepare Food for the Freezer.

They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.

    If you are meaning the vegan butter then, I am sorry, but no. This recipe has to have it. Maybe you could substitute a mashed banana for it. Not sure though since I have not tried it. let me know if you make them. Thanks 🙂

    Welcome! I am so glad you found me too! Congratulations for making the change. One hint is to make sure you get enough protein to start with. I didn't pay attention and my hair got brittle. I take a supplement (biotin) just to keep my bases covered. Keep coming back because I am always putting on new goodies. 🙂
