Blueberry-Lemon Crumb Muffins

Rating: 5 stars 5
Blueberries and lemon are a natural pairing in these light and airy muffins with a delicate brown sugar crumble. If you like an extra blast of lemon flavor, use lemon extract rather than vanilla. These muffins are best with fresh blueberries, but you can substitute with frozen. Don't thaw them before you stir them into the batter.

Low-Carb Blueberry Muffins

Rating: 5 stars 14
Just because you're watching carbs doesn't mean you can't have the classic breakfast pastry. In place of all-purpose flour, nutty almond and coconut flours make these muffins fluffy while slashing carbs. A bit of brown sugar blunts the tartness of fresh blueberries. Make these ahead for a grab-and-go breakfast for the week.

Banana-Blueberry Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
The slight acidity of buttermilk tenderizes and moistens baked goods while allowing you to cut way back on butter or oils. Here, it also lends a slight tanginess to the winning combination of bananas and blueberries.

Vegan Flourless Blender Blueberry Mini Muffins

Rating: 5 stars 1
We subtracted the flour, dairy products and eggs from these healthy mini muffins, which are vegan and gluten-free. But we left in all the good stuff--like tons of juicy berries in every bite. Applesauce and brown sugar make these blender muffins moist and provide just the right amount of sweetness for breakfast or a snack.

Jam-Filled Almond Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
A crunchy topping of sugared toasted almonds and a surprise filling of almond-scented berry jam makes these whole-wheat muffins reminiscent of Danish pastries. They are perfect for a special breakfast or brunch.

Blueberry-Orange Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
Small wild blueberries, which tend to be more tart than cultivated berries, are wonderful for baking. Forage them yourself or look for them with other frozen fruit in your supermarket.

Berry Rich Muffins

Rating: 5 stars 1
Dried blueberries or cherries enhance the fruitiness of these wholesome berry muffins. If it is more convenient, use frozen berries instead of fresh.
