A Quick and Easy Breakfast Muffin with Miffy’s!

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

I am always looking for ways to get us out the door faster in the morning. Much to Jay’s dismay, both of the kids (particularly V) seems to have inherited my “always running late” gene. It seems that no matter how early we wake up each morning for school, we are scrambling to make it there before the second bell.

One thing that seems to slow us down is breakfast. Everybody wants something, and usually they are unhappy with what they picked and it takes them forever to eat it. I starting making and buying items that could be eaten in the car – granola bars, squeezable applesauce, and muffins – but I was getting a little burnt out making the same things every week.

When I had the chance to try a “Marvelous Muffin Mix” from Miffy’s Foods, I was super excited!

The Apple Spice mix is chocked full of yummy ingredients to serve as your base — Organic Whole Wheat Flour, Organic Oat Bran, Organic Oats, tons of spices including ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, plus brown sugar to name a few. The directions are very easy in that you only need to add apples, applesauce, an egg, some oil and some milk.

But you don’t have to leave it at that. You can also add nuts or raisins, or experiment with a few other fruits!

I am tying to stay away from oil and eggs in most of our baked goods and decided that I would leave them out in this as well. Instead of adding the egg I mashed up half of a large banana. This added a great punch of flavor, and upped the amount of fruit my kids would get in this as well. In place of the oil, I added an equal amount of applesauce.

We also decided to jazz up the crunchy cinnamon and sugar mix that was included for the top and added some rolled oats and ground up flax seed to it.

They were so good!!

The kids were really happy with these muffins as well. They actually at them, and both kids were happy to have them in hand for the car ride to school.

I love how easy they were! I like to bake, but measuring out the dry ingredients – especially the flour – is my least favorite part. It was really nice to just be able to dump them in. I also love that the mix is made using some organic ingredients. It means that I don’t have to sacrifice good food for convenience.

Miffy’s Foods offers multiple muffin mixes that are sure to please your entire family. These mixes are mom-made with organic grains, and really take the hassle out of baking homemade treats!
