You can try this recipe by replacing the cherry jam with raspberry jam, which also goes very well with pistachios.
You can also sprinkle your muffins with crushed hazelnuts or flaked almonds.
For a vegan version: replace the butter by a neutral oil, use almond milk, and replace the egg by applesauce.
