10 Ways to Jazz Up Muffin Mix

Now that I’m not working this year, our mornings have gotten a lot less hectic.  I actually have time to make Connor’s breakfast instead of handing him something as we run out the door.

Recently while shopping at Kroger, Connor picked out a few packs of Martha White’s Muffin Mix and asked if I could make him muffins for breakfast.  After looking at the package and seeing that all I need is milk to make the muffins, I knew that they would be perfect for breakfast.

I usually wake up around 6 am so I can drink my coffee, feed the baby, and watch the news which also gives me plenty of time to whip up a batch of muffins.

And since we are such big fans of muffins, I thought it would be fun to share 10 Ways to Jazz up Muffin Mix to make them taste even better:

  • Add fresh fruit – bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
  • Add nuts and/or dried fruit
  • Dip the tops in melted butter and then roll in cinnamon and sugar
  • Add a streusel topping
  • Use fruit juice instead of the liquid listed in the directions
  • Add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips
  • Drop spoonful of mix to cookie sheets and make muffin tops
  • Make waffles instead of muffins.  Or even donuts would be fun if you have a donut pan.
  • Add a spoonful of cream cheese, peanut butter, jelly or Nutella to each muffin
  • Substitute half the liquid with sour cream or Greek yogurt

Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins

The other morning I took a pack of Martha White’s Blueberry muffins and added two things from the list above – a cream cheese filling and a streusel topping – to create delicious Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins.

  1. Can you bake the orange/cranberry muffin mix in a small loaf pan? And if so, how long and what temp do you use?
