Introduction

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.

Ingredients

    For the dry mix:

    8 cups flour (calculated with white flour, but wheat is great too)
    3 cups sugar
    3 tsp. salt
    3 tsp. cinnamon
    2 tsp. nutmeg
    3 Tbsp. baking powder

    This is enough to make four batches.

    Ingredients for the muffins:
    1 c milk (I used 1%)
    1 egg
    1/2 c applesauce, unsweetened (can use oil, if you want that instead)
    2 3/4 c of the dry muffin mix

Directions

In a huge bowl, mix together all the dry muffin mix ingredients. I use a whisk to mix it all together until well blended. Store in a container with a lid until used.

To make the muffins, combine 2 3/4 c of the muffin mix with the wet ingredients. Spray muffin tin. Full tins half to 2/3 full. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven. 16 minutes for regular sized muffins. 12 minutes for mini muffins.

The muffin mix recipe makes enough for about 4 batches of muffins.

The muffin recipe makes 12 (muffins cups mostly full) to 14 (about 2/3 full) muffins.

Calories were calculated on 14 muffins per batch x 4 batches=56 muffins (sorry, I originally typed in the wrong number)


Added this later after reading comments--these amounts are not calculated in the calories.

add 1/2 cup pumpkin, cut the applesauce (oil) to 1/4 cup, 1/4 cup chocolate chips

add 3/4 cup applesauce for more apple taste instead of 1/2 cup

1/3 cup craisins and 1/3 cup white chocolate chips

1 mashed banana, 1/3-1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips

1/3 c grated carrot and 1/3 cup raisins

any kind of nuts--1/3 to 1/2 cup
chopped up fruit--1/3 to 1/2 cup (grated apple is good), blueberries-toss in a little flour first and they won't float to the top, any pie fillings



For liquid add-ins increase cooking time by a few minutes.

    Super simple and tastes great! The only variation I've tried is adding blueberries and extra cinnamon. I think I'll be playing around with other things, but GREAT base recipe. - 8/13/10

    The salt is too much. I think you should decrease the salt to half. I didn't have any muffin containers so I made 5 large muffins in small bowls (for my five working days). They taste good. I'll pack them for my breakfast at work and have them with some tea. Thanks. - 12/26/09

    Thank you - thank you - thank you! I've been looking for something like this forever! Perfect just the way it is! I mixed half wheat and half white flour and just threw in a few raisins - everyone in the house loved this recipe! - 11/9/11

    It's easier to weigh the flour than measure it. 1 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour is 5 ounces or 140 grams. 1 cup of whole wheat flour is 4.5 ounces or 130 grams. 1 cup of sugar is 7.5 ounces or 204 grams. This recipe is amazing. I bake on the weekends and freeze individually in saran wrap. :) - 2/20/11

    Such a great idea - mix makes up into 4 batches, only takes a few minutes to have the base mix for whatever you decide to make them into. I've added some walnuts and more apple to my first batch and they were so moist and flavorful. Will make the rest into orange-cranberry, carrot-pecan and banana. - 5/17/10
