If you run into a situation where you don’t have enough muffin batter to fill your muffin pan, make sure you fill the empty spaces to ⅔ full with water. This helps them to bake evenly.
Another tip is to turn the muffin tin around halfway through the baking process to ensure even baking and browning.
You're definitely going to need a muffin tin and muffin cups (affiliate links). You can use paper muffin liners or reuseable silicone liners.

Mini muffins are great for little snacks or little kids. If you want to make mini muffins, you'll generally need to cook them for about ½ the time of a regular muffin (at the same temperature) in a mini muffin tin. (affiliate link). Grease the muffin pan really well or use mini baking cups (affiliate link)
You can generally store most muffins for a couple of days at room temperature, up to 5 days in the fridge or freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months. See each recipe for specific storage information.

Such a yummy collection of healthy muffins! Love muffins with extra fresh berries in them.
This is such a great list! I'll start by trying the banana chocolate one this week.
Chocolate is always a great place to start, Lizet! lol
This is so perfect!! Thank you for sharing the recipe! So delish and really healthy.
I don't know which I want to make first. I love the sound of the date bran muffins but I think the double chocolate one would be awesome! Delicious and guilt free!
I know, Jacqueline - it's a tough decision!
