  • See post for ingredient substitutions
  • Add a little vanilla extract to the batter
  • Don't overmix, or else you'll end up with tough muffins
  • Top with a sprinkle of coarse sugar, also called Turbinado sugar, before baking
  • You could also top with a streusel topping
  • Fill the muffin wells all the way to the top
  • Use an ice cream scoop to spoon muffin batter into the paper liners so they're all the same size
  • Don't overbake, you want the muffin tops to be golden brown and a toothpick to come out clean
  • Let them cool before eating for better flavor and the best texture
