There’s nothing quite as delicious as a warm muffin with your breakfast beverage. We hope our Belden Stratford residents in Chicago, Illinois, enjoy these morning muffin suggestions.

Banana Almond Morning Muffins

A delicious morning muffin does not require a lot of preparation time. This recipe can be put together while your coffee is brewing and ready for your second cup if you sip slowly.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 fully ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • ¾ cup of soft butter
  • ½ cup of sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees before mixing the ingredients. Peel and mash the ripe bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, eggs, and sugar and mix thoroughly. Blend in the dry ingredients followed by the almond slices. Line four large muffin tins or coat with a non-stick product. Spoon in the mixture and bake 20-25 minutes or until center is baked. Enjoy warm.

Raspberry Walnut Morning Muffins

If you are not a so-called “morning person,” it’s okay to prepare the mix the night before and refrigerate. However, the raspberries do best when they are added just before baking.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • ¾ cup of soft butter
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries
  • ½ cup of walnuts

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugars and then add milk. Stir in the dry ingredients including the walnuts. Lastly, gently mix in the frozen raspberries. Line four large muffin tins or coat with a non-stick product. Spoon in the mixture and bake 20-25 minutes or until center is baked. Enjoy warm.

Pumpkin Pecan Morning Muffins

This relatively quick-baking recipe is a pumpkin and pecan delight. It makes a perfect indulgence on a cozy Saturday morning.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup of soft butter
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup of chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix butter, sugar, egg, and pumpkin. Blend in dry ingredients including pecans. Spoon in mixture and bake 15-20 minutes or until center is baked. Enjoy warm.
