Any recipe that calls for simple whole ingredients is something I'am interested in, especially in this world of processed cookies, cakes and muffins. This recipe has ingredients like Greek yoghurt, whole vanilla bean, eggs and buttermilk, a recipe my mom would appreciate. These ones seem like they have been made to be as healthy as possible. Muffins are a popular nineteenth century quick bread recipe that can be made either sweet or savory. In North America muffins are similar to cupcakes in both size and recipes. Muffins are usually baked in round sheets of paper (available in a variety of colors, and fun designs), foil or silicone making easier to clean up and hold.

Some popular muffin recipes can include apple crumble, banana nut, blueberry, chocolate chip, double chocolate, raspberry, raison, cranberry, zucchini, and healthy versions some of which are gluten free, with seeds and nuts. Some savory muffin recipes can include corn, cheese, zucchini cheese, sausage and cheese, bacon cheddar and butternut squash muffins. Corn and cheese muffins are a favorite in the fall, and popular at thanksgiving dinners. Muffins are a convenient and quick idea for morning breakfasts on the go, they are also a great addition to school time lunches, especially if mom makes a healthy version, so the kids can get some nutrition when they are not at home. Savory muffins are also a smart alternative to breakfast, and can have some protein added in along with some of your favorite cheese to make a quick and easy breakfast,or lunchtime snack to go.
