Muffins are often considered unhealthy, but they don't have to deserve their bad rep. When baked with the right ingredients, a muffin can be a nutritious breakfast that will help you get more fruit (and even veggies) into your diet. Here are eight recipes you can't miss.

1. Banana Oatmeal Muffins

These are supposedly good topped with almond butter, and I can't say I'm even a bit skeptical. The best news is they can be made in one bowl. Yes, you heard that right. Delicious and dorm-friendly.

2. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

I've never thought of putting peanut butter in a muffin, but I must say it's pretty ingenious. These are also a great way to use overly ripe bananas.

4. Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Banana bread with a gooey chocolate center? Yes please. This recipe is customizable by substituting different flours (almond, oat, coconut) depending on preference. It also uses everyone's favorite all-purpose kitchen hack: coconut oil.

6. Whole Wheat Berry Muffins

Whole wheat flour, greek yogurt, and honey instead of sugar make these a guilt-free treat. The berries and lemon zest add all the fruity sweetness we all crave.
