That’s right, this Muffin Queen (hi, it’s me!) rounded up my favorite healthy muffin recipes that are perfect for breakfast, snack, desserts, and especially sharing with the people you love. LET’S DO IT UP PEOPLE.

When I first shared this roundup I only had about 30 muffins recipes, but now we’re just over 50 (and you know there are plenty more to come). Truth: I call baking my therapy. When I’m feeling anxious, I trash up my kitchen and bake my heart out. It soothes the soul.

But you know what I love even more? Baking for the ones I love. There’s nothing better than expressing your love and gratitude for someone than with fresh baked goodies.

Each of these healthy muffin recipes has a unique flavor and add-ins, but they all have one thing in common…they are amazingly fluffy, perfectly sweet and have wholesome ingredients. I created these recipes using different flours so that there’s a good mix of regular and gluten-free that you can share with anyone.

After all, muffins are one of my favorite ways to show some love to friends and family. So, it’s time! Time to take a scroll through this fluffy goodness, preheat the oven, and get baking. Share with a loved one, and be sure to freeze extra for yourself.

I separated all of these muffins into different flavors for easy scrolling. Yes, many of them overlap because I love to combine lots of flavors together, but you’ll get the gist! I also included oatmeal muffin cups because they’re so cute and muffin-like. BEST breakfast. Enjoy!
