Make Your Own Muffin Mix

Muffins are a fun, tasty, and sometimes semi healthy breakfast. There are premade mixes that you can buy at the store but don't you wish you could provide your family a delicious healthier option? Well, one that is still pretty simple to make on a hectic morning? Have no fear as I show you how to make your own muffin mix.

This muffin mix can be used with the "add on" of your choice so they can be blueberry muffins, raisin muffins, pecan muffins, or my family's favorite, Chocolate Chip Muffins.

I grind my own grain for whole wheat flour. Wheat starts to lose it's nutrients the second you grind it into flour so the flour you buy in the store that has been sitting on the shelf probably doesn't have many nutrients in it. Since I grind my own flour, I store my mix in the freezer. If you are using normal flour, storing it in the pantry should be just fine.

Basic Muffin Mix
8 cups flour (white flour, half white - half wheat, or whole wheat pastry flour)
3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons nutmeg

Combine everything in a large bowl. Fill sandwich bags with 3 cups of mix. (Use 1 1/2 cups for a half recipe.)

To Make Muffins
Preheat oven to 375ยบ F

3 Cups muffin mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (or oil)

Mix above ingredients. Then stir in 3/4 cup of your choice of mix in (raisins, blueberries, pecans, or chocolate chips.

Fill greased muffin tins or use papers 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Makes about 1 dozen.
