Muffin Tin Mania

November 29, 2021 | Jody Gatewood

Today I get to wrap up our series on our favorite kitchen tools and share with you all the ways I use a muffin tin. I love to bake and the thing I love to bake the most is muffins. They are easy to make, they make a great breakfast or snack, and it’s fun to try to different flavors.

A favorite flavor in my house is banana. And muffins are a great way to use up ripe bananas. Our Banana Oatmeal Bread recipe can be made into muffins. They are delicious! I also like to make our Lemon Chia Seed Muffins.

These days I’ve been enjoying eating oatmeal for breakfast. Instead of making oatmeal each morning, I make our Baked Oatmeal Muffins. I make a batch of these and freeze them and then reheat in the microwave when I want one.

And while we are on the topic of breakfast, another type of muffin I like to make is Scrambled Egg Muffins. No need to heat up your skillet to make scrambled eggs. Just pull out a muffin tin and make a batch of these to enjoy.

My muffin tin isn’t limited to just breakfast foods! I also like to make meatloaf muffins for supper. After mixing up my meatloaf mixture, I divide it among the muffin cups and bake. It’s a fun way to eat meatloaf and it reduces baking time!

My daughter also likes to bake and she prefers making dessert.  She likes to make our Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes. Or if you’d rather have fruit for dessert, try our Frozen Fruit Cups.

It’s muffin mania!
