A homemade muffin mix makes it easy to whip up a quick batch of muffins anytime!

This recipe is perfect for spur-of-the-moment cravings people like me. If you also wake up some mornings wishing there was fresh baking, but there is none, or you have kids who come creeping down after their homework is done looking for some baked goods for a snack, you need to keep this mix in your cupboards. It’s so quick and so versatile, you’ll wonder how you ever kept house without it.

The recipe is originally from the More Time Moms cookbook. It’s a great system of weekly meals, recipes and grocery lists which I followed for a while years ago. If you’re struggling, or are in a slump when it comes to meal prep, I highly recommend trying it for a while to get you back on track.

Anyways, this recipe is tucked into the back of the book amidst a bunch of snack ideas and quick tips. I’m sharing it as it appears in the cookbook, but to be honest, I usually add either some ground flaxseed or some chia seeds, just to add another little boost of nutrition.

This recipe makes a really large quantity, so I keep it in a few big mason jars.  One stays in the baking cupboard, and doesn't take too much space.  The rest get put further away in the cold room or a top shelf till I need them.  When I'm near the end of the last jar, it's time to make more!

I use the mix to make batches of six muffins.  That way they all get eaten while they're fresh, and I just whip up another batch when there's a need for midnight snacks, breakfasts on the run, or elevensies.  But obviously the recipe can be easily doubled to make a dozen.

The instructions for using the mix are versatile enough to incorporate ingredients and flavours which you probably already have on hand.  After a while you'll have some favourites, and remember to always keep those ingredients stocked in your pantry or freezer.

A few of our favourites:  

Banana + Chocolate Chip
Apple + Oats
Carrot + Walnut
Zucchini + Chocolate Chip
Cranberry + White Chocolate
