Muffins with serious flavor!

Lemony Blue Muffin Slide-1

We’ve had a couple of long months of eating our way through the healthiest of food groups, and we’re ready for a little change. We’re going to keep the good-for-you stuff going, but we’re adding in the occasional sweet treat with our breakfasts, brunch and grab-and-go snack attack sessions. Some of our most popular recipes are for muffins that are high in flavor (thank you to the world’s best vanilla extract!) and just the right size (not too big, not too small) to hit all the right spots on the taste buds!

Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins – Starting things off with a not too decadent option. Using Greek yogurt in this recipe cuts the fat and adds a great moisture. These raspberry white chocolate muffins are delightful, delicious, and down-right yummy! Serve these as a special breakfast treat  or whenever you want to share a sweet morsel with your favorite loved-ones!

Lemony Coffee Cake Muffins – Indulge in these spring inspired muffins! Rodelle lemon extract and vanilla are the perfect combination of flavors to enhance these deliciously plump blueberries!

Peach Financier Recipe – These financiers aren’t pretending to be something they’re not; they pack all the delicious cake flavors to make every calorie worth it. And who doesn’t like cake for breakfast? Exactly!

Vanilla Apple Streusel Muffins – These Vanilla Apple Streusel Cupcakes are so simple to make. Not to mention, they really are the perfect combination of spices to enhance the delicious apple flavor! That streusel though!!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins We’ve added our Rodelle Vanillas to these muffins which transports the flavors in this recipe from tempting to tantalizing. These may just be the most enticing muffins you’ve ever eaten.

Moral of the story…when in doubt, make a muffin, eat one and carry on. We’re baking up a couple big batches for the weekend!
