20 Healthy Muffin Recipes That Make Awesome Snacks

20 Healthy Muffin Recipes That Make Awesome Snacks

If you’re into baking, then you’re going to love these delicious, high-protein, healthy muffin recipes.

 

Muffins are the ultimate convenience food. But thanks to the mass-produced, plastic-wrapped garbage that masquerades as muffins, these baked delights have gotten a bad reputation.

When you make your own at home, though, you can get all the gooey goodness with ingredients you actually should be eating, like high-quality flour, mashed fruit, Greek yogurt, butter, and healthy oil.

Each of these healthy muffin recipes makes enough to share with gym buddies or to freeze and defrost later.

They’ll keep well in the freezer for two to three months but they may come out a bit dry. Nothing that a spread of butter, fruit spread, or melted coconut oil can’t take care of though!

Enjoy the muffins!

Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins

These muffins taste like the classic after-school snack: peanut butter and banana sandwiches. However, these are much better portions for those of us who aren’t in the middle of a growth spurt.

Each peanut butter muffin contains less than 150 calories, whereas a simple sandwich with two slices of whole-wheat bread, a few tablespoons of peanut butter, and a couple teaspoons of honey will add up to nearly 500 calories.

Serves 15

Ingredients

2 cups white whole-wheat flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 3/4 cup mashed bananas (about 4 large bananas)

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup pure honey

1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted and cooled

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

Sweet Potato Almond Butter Muffins

These vegan treats have an equal amount of fat and protein – 8 grams apiece. However, all the fat comes from healthy sources: flax seed, coconut oil, and almond butter.

Throw in some sweet potato puree, and the final result is a great muffin to toss in your gym bag as pre-workout fuel.

Serves 9

Ingredients

1 flax egg

3/4 cup sweet potato puree

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp canola oil (or melted coconut oil)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

Double Fudge Banana Muffins

Get your chocolate fix in only 100 calories – less than half of what you’d consume in a serving of dark chocolate.

These muffins may look like chocolate chip brownies, but they’re lightly sweetened banana oat muffins in disguise. Then applesauce stands in for the oil, and ground oats are used instead of all-purpose flour to add more fiber and a bit more protein.

Serves 12

Ingredients

1 large egg

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 bananas)

1 cup oat flour (or all-purpose flour)

Pulled Pork Cornbread Muffins

Not all muffins have to be sweet, and this recipe will even help you turn one into a light lunch or fun appetizer.

Cornbread is easy to make whether you use muffin mix or a recipe, and if you don’t have leftover pulled pork, you can simply stick a roast in a slow cooker. With the two main ingredients done, all you need are some toppings like sour cream.

If you want to get fancy, this recipe will also show you how to make candied jalapeno slices.

Serves 18

Ingredients

3 cups pulled pork

1 cup orange sauce

3 packages (8.5 oz. each) cornbread muffin mix

3 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 cup sour cream

2 jalapeno peppers

Clean Blueberry Protein Muffins

healthy protein muffin recipePicture courtesy of Eat Yourself Skinny

It’s not always possible to swap out all the flour in a recipe for protein powder because it can heavily (and I mean heavily) affect the texture, making muffins too dense to eat.

And that’s what makes this recipe so great. With one muffin packing a total of 17 grams of protein, this is an awesome homemade replacement for store-bought protein bars.

Serves 12

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups Whey+ protein powder

1 1/2 cups eggs whites

3 Tbsp almond flour

2 Tbsp ground flax-seed

3 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk

2 Tbsp water 1 mashed banana

1/4 cup organic (no sugar added) applesauce

2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon

Apple Muffins with Vanilla Glaze

Applesauce is a common ingredient in baked goods, but that’s in part because the flavor can be so mellow. These healthy apple muffins make fruit the star with big chunks of diced apple.

If you want to make sure the apples are discernible in the muffins, don’t bake with a soft variety. Look for firm apples that are full of flavor like honeycrisp, pink lady, and gala.

Serves 16

Ingredients

Apple Muffins:

1/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking soda

2 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup coconut oil

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

2 large eggs, room temp.

 Zucchini Banana Walnut Muffins

Zucchini and banana are both classic quick breads in their own right, but they’re even better when paired together. Crushed walnuts make the muffins richer and add a bit of protein and healthy fat.

Serves 12

Ingredients

2 cups oat flour, packed

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1/2 cup stevia in the raw

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cup yellow crookneck squash, grated

Healthy English Muffins

Make English muffins at home in minutes using your microwave.

You can make these with a combo of pea protein and brown rice flour, two reasons the nutritional profile is an improvement over standard toast. Then there’s also flax seed, hemp hearts, and coconut oil to offer plenty of healthy fats.

Slather with fruit preserves, or use to make a breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs and bacon.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1/2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed

3 Tbsp. hot water

1/2 Tbsp. tapioca flour

1 Tbsp. brown rice flour (or flour of choice)

1 Tbsp. pea protein

1/2 tsp. coconut oil

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Healthy Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread is a staple of American cooking, but it isn’t always the most nutritious option. Aside from the cornmeal, which adds fiber and trace minerals to your diet, there’s often just white flour and butter (or oil).

You can make cornbread not only more nutrient dense, but also tastier with a few additions. Mashed avocado can replace half of the oil with heart-healthy fats, and whole corn kernels keep the muffins from drying out while adding more antioxidants.

Serves 12

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cornbread mix

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 cup mashed avocado

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 large eggs

1 Tbsp. dark amber maple syrup (optional)

1 cup sweet corn kernels

Berry & Ricotta Muffins

For berry muffins that taste like cheesecake, just add ricotta to the batter. It’ll also make the muffins rich and tender.

These are every bit as amazing as berry muffins from a bakery or café, but they aren’t greasy since there’s no butter or oil. Instead they’re a lean dessert, or a sweet breakfast for those who are about to run out the door and burn off those carbs before lunch.

Serves 12

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2 large eggs

1/4 cup pure honey

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. milk

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1 1/2 cups mixed berries

Banana Nut Zucchini Muffins

When you’re baking healthy muffins, the trick to making them taste like they belong in a café is to compromise.

Instead of replacing all the oil with applesauce, there are equal amounts of each. Same goes for incorporating whole-wheat flour – or protein powder, if that’s more your style – both of which can make the muffins denser. To get those complex carbs with less impact on the final product, look for whole-wheat pastry flour or white whole-wheat flour.

Serves 16

Ingredients

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

1 large egg, room temp.

1 cup mashed bananas

1/4 cup canola oil

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins

Need an extra bite and another jolt of coffee in the morning? Grab one of these mocha muffins as you head out the door.

You’ll get to enjoy more coffee without worrying about spilling a hot beverage on-the-go, and one mocha muffin is like eating a handful of almonds with some slices of banana, sweetened with Medjool dates and a touch of coconut sugar.

Serves 12

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

2 Tbsp. coconut oil

8 large Medjool dates, pitted

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbsp. coffee grounds

1 cup almond flour

Moist Bran Muffins

Bran muffins are the epitome of a healthy muffin because they’re high in fiber, but the potential problem when baking with bran is it can easily make the muffins dry. One way to make sure muffins are moist is to add plump raisins to the batter, but that doesn’t always cut it.

This recipe instead has you first soak the raisins in simmering water, then puree them to ensure there’s some in every bite.

Serves 10

Ingredients

2 cups unprocessed bran

1 1/2 cups raisins, divided

1 1/2 cups water, divided

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 tsp. orange zest, finely chopped

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 extra-large egg

1 extra-large egg white

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup whole-wheat flour

Blueberry Coconut Muffin

Blueberry muffins are a classic, and while they’re never going out of style, you can update them every once in a while with a single step. Mix in another flavor, and your blueberry muffins may suddenly seem gourmet.

This recipe adds shredded coconut, but you could use other dried fruit like strawberries. Or, double up the blueberries with a handful of dried blueberries, winding up with some that are chewy and others that burst in your mouth.

Serves 16

Ingredients

2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour

1 cup wheat bran

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup raw honey

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Almond Flour Muffins

It only takes five ingredients to whip up these almond muffins, and you’ll be surprised by what’s not on the list: flour, butter, oil, and oats.

Instead these paleo muffins start with finely ground almonds and eggs. Baking soda and apple cider vinegar are used for leavening, and there’s just a tablespoon of honey for sweetness.

These simple muffins make a great base for your favorite mix-ins: dried fruit, chopped nuts, spices, or a swirl of almond butter.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 cup blanched almond flour

2 large eggs

1 Tbsp. pure honey

Carrot Raisin Quinoa Muffins

Ok, these don’t have a ton of protein, but they have so many other good ingredients they had to make the list.

The whole batch is sweetened with just 1/4 cup brown sugar thanks to the natural sugars of apples, oranges, carrots, and raisins. And they get a little protein boost if you replace half the flour with whey, a trick you can use with pretty much any muffin recipe you want to bake.

Serves 12

Ingredients

1 cup cooked quinoa (1/3 cup uncooked)

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup Whey+ protein powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

2 eggs

3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

No-Sugar-Added Banana Muffins

Who says baked goods can’t be good for you? These banana nut muffins are full of flavor; yet they don’t use any cane sugar, honey, or stevia

Instead this recipe lets the natural sweetness of the bananas shine through. Just be sure to use bananas that are ripe or – better yet – overripe to get the optimal flavor out of them. You can also roast them in the oven in the peels to naturally caramelize the fruit’s natural sugars.

Serves 12

Ingredients

4 large bananas

1 large egg

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. baking soda

    Hey mike, quick question on the macros and calories for the pork muffins. When I converted the macros to cals and summed it all up I got 222 cals (26*4=104, 7*4=28, 10*9=90 for a total of 222). I’m just curious as to where this recipe may have gotten the fewer calories from? And if I were to try and incorporate this into a meal plan, should i use the calculated calories or the cals provided from the recipe?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Hi – new to the site. I have a question about the nutrition info. Specifically the sweet potato muffins. Here it says they have 9 grams of protein, but the recipe says 3.9. What am I missing? Thanks for all of these. Looking forward to making a bunch of them to make good breakfast easy!

    • Hey Dee!

      I have someone double-check all numbers because I don’t trust what I find on other people’s sites, haha.

      I will have this triple-checked just to be sure.

  • Abigail Crain

    I made the prosciutto and chive muffins for breakfast. Made two small changes to use what I had on hand in my kitchen. Coconut flour instead of whole wheat (added an extra egg because of the coconut flour) & turkey bacon in place of the prosciutto.
    I didn’t have high hopes as far as taste goes, because I have a tendency to under or overdo spice in food however
    They were fantastic!! Didn’t taste like health food at all 🙂
    Look forward to following more of your reciepes.
    Thanks for posting these!

    • Way to make it work! Glad you enjoyed them. 🙂

      LMK how you like any other recipes you try.
