Favorite muffin & granola flavors?

I offered to bake up some snacks to celebrate the "re-opening" of my gym this week - the owner has become a friend of mine, and he just had some major renovations done in the place. Anyway, I'm trying to decide what flavors to do, and I'm getting tired of making the decisions for everyone :) So I figured I'd ask my fellow hounds for some suggestions...if someone was baking muffins and/or granola for you, what flavors would you want? I can pretty much do anything, although I'm taking Banana off the table because I don't have any overripe ones on hand, and I don't know if I'll be able to get them at the market tomorrow. Anything else is fair game...

TIA!

  1. Sweet corn and honey muffin.

    1. Blueberry muffins....pumpkin muffins...apple/cinnamon muffins--those come to mind first for me.

      1. I love morning glory muffins -if I can't have those, blueberry is always good.

          A local bakery makes a double chocolate for which I'd love to have the recipe.

          1. re: dolores

            I love double chocolate, vanilla almond, and cinnamon swirl. At a minimum, I'd suggest doing at least one without a fruit/berry other than bran in it for some variety.

        2. Lemon Blueberry and Blueberry Streusal are the most popular in my crowd. As far as granola, I love vanilla almond or a tropical blend with coconut and macadamias.

          1. great, thanks for the feedback! i'll post tonight with the flavor list when i'm finished baking.

              I'm always looking for new muffin recipes - particularly lower fat options. I'd appreciate it if you'd post whatever you can on the HC Board.

              TIA :)

                my recipes probably won't be of much help to you because i do very specific specialty baking - all my muffins are gluten-free & soy-free, and most are vegan as well...and i bake with agave nectar instead of traditional refined sugars. but i'll certainly post the flavor combos to offer some inspiration, and if you want to post any of the typical recipes you use [or e-mail them to me], i'd be happy to help you make some lower-far modifications...as i'm sure would a lot of other hounds.
