17 Delicious Recipes You Can Make Using a Mini Muffin Tin

If you've been on Pinterest lately, you may have noticed that muffin tins are all the rage! It seems like anything and everything can be made in a mini muffin tray these days. 

I love muffin tins and have always been somewhat of a cupcake addict, but lately I've been very much into mini versions and the other creations you can bake in the tins.

I just love mini everything! They're perfect for kids, great for portion control... and just so fun! I find most muffin recipes that freeze well work even better as mini muffins because they thaw so fast.

The possibilities are pretty much endless, but breakfast, appetizers, dessert, and of course MUFFINS can all be made in mini muffin trays. I'm always on the hunt for new ideas, so below I have rounded up 17 delicious recipes for you to try!

Veggie Breakfast Cups

What better what to start your day (and this roundup) than with breakfast? These veggie cups are packed full of veggies but feature a hash brown "crust." Yum!

Mini Breakfast Cups

These mini breakfast cups are perfect if you are a fan of bacon and cheese - like me!

Bite-Sized Cinnamon Rolls
from Brittany's Pantry

Cinnamon rolls are so delicious and you can't beat homemade! These work as both a breakfast food and a snack.

Mini Corn Muffins
from Brittany's Pantry

I love corn muffins! I think these are perfect for kids, but if you're looking for something a bit fancier, Brittany also has a recipe that adds bacon, chives and spicy cream cheese whip to these here

Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins

These would make the perfect fall snack! Plus if you follow weight watchers, they're only one point!

You can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. Chocolate and peanut butter in a cookie crust? Yes please!
