These power-packed muffins by Chef Gordon Ramsay have fresh berries, bananas and whole-wheat flour. Practically made to accompany a glass of fresh citrus juice.
Recipe: Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
Featuring the ultimately satisfying flavor combo of apple and cinnamon, plus the added bonus of whole-wheat flour, fruit, nuts and carrots, these muffins are dangerously close to perfect.
Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Whole Wheat Muffins
These muffins are heavy on the fruit, which means big bites of warm, juicy blackberries. Blue corn has a sweet, nutty flavor, but yellow cornmeal is a fine substitute. The batter is best refrigerated overnight, so it has a chance to leaven.

Once made, the batter for these muffins can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. A great base for all sorts of nutritious fruit and nut add-ins, we recommend doubling (or tripling) the batter recipe for multiple batches.

Whole-wheat flour, rolled oats and peanut butter gives these muffins staying power. Fresh bananas and strawberry jam make them fun.
