Tips & Tricks: Spicing Up Your Muffins

I have to admit, I am a lazy muffin maker. I buy the Quaker muffin mixes at the grocery store so that I do not have to try out recipes or make much of a mess with various containers of dry ingredients for a dozen muffins.

To make up for my lack of effort, I do try to make my muffins more exciting. I will add in other ingredients such as nuts, chocolate chips, skor chunks, or extract.

This weekend I made oatmeal muffins and added 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 tsp of Epicure’s chai spice. They are a great snack in the fall/winter. Because of the additional volume from the chocolate chips, I was also able to make some mini muffins which make my heart happy. They’re so darn cute!

What is your favourite addition to make your muffins more interesting? I would love your suggestions on different things to try.
