These cozy chai spiced muffins are perfect for an autumn brunch or served as a tasty afternoon snack with a hot cup of coffee or tea. They're richly flavorful and have a delightful glazed topping.
This delicious recipe is easy to assemble and can be served with or without the iced topping.
If you like chai lattes, you've got to try this recipe! It's got all the flavor of a delicious masala chai but in muffin form.
If you'd like to make these muffins for breakfast, you can leave off the iced topping and serve them with a dab of butter or cream cheese.
Here's what you'll need to make these delicious muffins.
- All-Purpose Flour (you can also use white whole wheat flour if you'd prefer)
- Chai Spice Blend (a mixture of ground cinnamon, black pepper, fennel seed, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves - here's a homemade chai spice mix recipe or you can use storebought. If you can't find chai spice, substitute it for pumpkin pie spice)
- Baking Soda
- Kosher Salt
- Very Rip Banana
- Coconut Oil (swap with unsalted butter if you'd prefer)
- Large Egg (at room temperature if possible)
- Cane Sugar (or granulated sugar)
- Pure Vanilla Extract
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats (do not substitute for quick oats)
- Powdered Sugar (also called confectioner's sugar and icing sugar)
- Chai Spice Mixture
- Milk (or substitute like almond milk or oat milk)

Muffins will keep at room temperature (store in an airtight container) for 2 to 3 days. If you'd like to keep them longer, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator - they'll save for 4 to 5 days.
