Easy Muffin Mix and Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(30 ratings)

A super easy mix to put together and store so you can make muffins easily and for very low cost and calories! I make the mix about once a month and then store it in a big #10 can (the size of a large coffee can) with a lid. On top of the lid I put the directions for making the muffins so that even my children can put them together.

My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!
