15 Delicious Fall Muffin Recipes

Now, if we’re being fully honest with you, muffins are the kind of thing that we could happily eat all year round, and we frequently do! We certainly know some places that sell great pre-baked muffins that taste very nice indeed, but nothing quite beats the satisfaction of baking them ourselves and watching our family members start to enjoy the smell while the tin is still in the oven, before they’ve even had a tastes. In the fall, however, there’s something particularly tempting about making muffins. Perhaps it’s because we’re all a little busier than usual, so it makes us feel nice to know that our loved ones can simply grab a tasty muffin from the counter before they rush out the door for a busy day, keeping them fed and on the go all at once. That’s why we’ve been feeling the urge to look up and try out all kinds of fantastic new fall muffin recipes lately and, luckily for us, we’ve been rather pleased indeed with how many fantastic options we found out there!

Just in case you’re as interested as we were, if not more, in the idea of making all kinds of new fall muffin recipes for your family this autumn, here are 15 of the very best flavours, ideas, and tutorials we’ve come across in our search so far.
