Quick Eggnog Muffins

If you have eggnog on hand (especially if you made this Homemade Eggnog Recipe), you’ll find that these muffins can be thrown together very quickly. They taste just like Christmas if you ask me!

Quick Eggnog MuffinsYum

2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
3/4 cup sucanat
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter
2 eggs
1 cup eggnog
2 teaspoons rum extract (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir together flour, sucanat, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add melted butter, eggs, eggnog, and extracts. Stir until well combined. Scoop batter into 16 paper lined muffin cups. Bake in a 400° for 15-22 minutes or until muffins are golden brown.

Makes approximately 16 muffins.


The rum extract in this recipe is optional, but it sure does add some great flavor! These are a perfect addition to your Christmas brunch. And did I mention they are easy to make? :)

    Looks great! I make an eggnog coffee cake every year for my hubby. He LOVES eggnog, I however am not a fan. But I don’t mind it in baked goods! I don’t think I can sway from the traditional coffee cake but these would be great to use up the rest of the eggnog for later next week!

    I love eggnog muffins. I bet this is a great recipe. I’ll have to try it with the clearance nog at the store or make my own just for this recipe.

    Would it be possible to use regular rum instead of rum extract? I know the flavor wouldn’t be as concentrated, but I bet it’s easier to find. :)

    Just finished breakfast, and these were amazing. My kids loved them and want me to make them again. Oh yeah, we used your eggnog recipe, too! My husband said that it was the best he had ever had…making another batch today. Thanks!!!!

    These sound great. Last year I made eggnog cookies which were at hit at our Christmas gathering. I love baking with eggnog since you get the taste of eggnog but it is not as rich as drinking it straight which I can’t do more than 1 glass of. Thanks!

    Laura, I don’t usually keep butter around – do you think melted coconut oil would work here or possibly some other kind of oil? Maybe it’ll taste like a tropical eggnog? :)


    Laura Reply:

    Sure, I think coconut oil should work fine. :)

    Can you say YUM!!! I made an eggnog cake (with yucky stuff that I found on sale a few years ago) and it was awesome. Even my eggnog disliking husband was all about it…I bet this could be converted to a cake and made with some eggnog frosting to make something similar!

    I made cherry eggnog bread yesterday and it is wonderful! So throw in some dried or candied cherries with this recipe!

    This looks like Christmas Eve breakfast to me! Good thing I hid the eggnog from the boys!!

    Thanks for another great recipe.

    I just made these and we eating them hot out of the oven. They won’t last for long! I had a quart of pumpkin eggnog in the frig, so I used that. Delicious!
