My Favorite Muffin Recipe And A Nordstrom Giveaway!

I realize this is a fashion blog, but a girl’s gotta eat, right?! More like splurge! I LOVE to bake. Baking is a stress reliever for me. The problem is, I am a sweet-a-holic too.. Not the best combo. I have learned that for me, I have to indulge every once and a while. If I deprive myself, It backfires. So, on the weekends I will make a big breakfast for my family and muffins is usually on that list, and I always serve them to my family just like this….LOL not even close! It’s usually served on paper plates and there is no flower presentation in sight haha! I do prefer to make things from scratch, if I have the time, because I can control what goes in them. I created this recipe after not finding the perfect one, so I combined a few, tried different combos and landed on this full proof recipe. It is great with any fruit. I have made it with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. These are strawberry muffins in the pic.

Here is the recipe and fair warning: it’s not a healthy muffin recipe. That can be another post. This recipe is a splurge recipe! But it’s darn delicious 😉


Basic muffin mix


1 ½ cups of all purpose flour (or gluten free flour, which I substitute a lot)

½ cup oats

½ cup granulated sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp cinnamon

1 egg

¾ cup milk

¼ cup vegetable oil

½ stick butter melted

1 ½ tsp vanilla

1 cup of desired fruit

raw sugar for muffin top


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together the flour, oats, sugars, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl combine egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla, and melted butter. Whisk together till smooth then add to dry ingredients. Fold in desired fruit. Batter should be a thicker consistency. Fill in muffin cups ¾ full and sprinkle about a half teaspoon of raw sugar on the top. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until middle is cooked through.


Please let me know if you make them and how they turn out!! I have a PERFECT waffle recipe that never fails me and I’m going to post that next week!


Have a great day, everyone!
