This homemade master muffin mix can make breakfast fast and easy, while still being very healthy!

Muffins can be worse than donuts.  I saw my kids eat an entire muffin, from a store that shall not be named, at a church camp-out last weekend.   The muffin in question; 690 calories, 48 grams of sugar, and 32 grams of fat!  And they had no trouble eating the entire thing!  I have always loved muffins though, so I knew there could be a better way.  Sometimes the best thing for a busy morning is pre-made muffins.  But this is how we make them better.master muffin mix in a jar from shk First, we start with our very own homemade muffin mix!  This is easy. We used:

  • 8 cups of whole wheat flour (Jeannie suggests Einkorn organic)

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/3 cup baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 cup coconut oil (in the solid state)

Mix all the dry ingredients together, and then cut in the solid coconut oil as if it were shortening.  Use a pastry blender to incorporate it well into the dry ingredients.

Store your mix at room temperature or below!  Any warmer, and your coconut oil will become soft and liquid.  If you live in a very warm climate, store your mix in the fridge.

I printed some Avery labels (because I’m no designer myself, and the labels are super easy!) for my jar.

After you have your mix, make your muffins!  We simply use 2-1/3 cup of muffin mix with 1 egg and 1 cup of milk.  Then, to flavor them, you can use two methods.

1) If you want all the muffins the same, mix the extra ingredients into your muffin mix!  All of it.

2) If you want a variety of muffins, simple top your muffins with your desired fruit or spices!

Then bake at 400 degrees.  For mini muffins we bake for 10-12 minutes. For large muffins, we bake for 20-22 minutes.

The flavor possibilities are endless.  The ones I have pictured here, but also peach, almond poppyseed, cinnamon crumble, chocolate, and so many more! Be creative!

About talknshare

My study of how to achieve and keep good health began when I was 18 and has been my lifelong passion. I have learned much over the years and when my T.O.P.S. group dissolved, I created Talk 'N Share. Life happened and I have not done anything with it until now. Since the beginning of this year I have learned many important things and wish to share with others, who like myself, may find it nearly impossible to lose those last few pounds and maintain the loss already achieved.
