Have you seen those cute little muffin mixes in a cup? There are a few brands out there like Flap Jacked Mighty Muffins and Kodiak Cakes Minute Muffins. They come in a cup, you add water and microwave. How easy is that? Not bad if I say so myself, except not every grocery store has them.
Also their kind of expensive and a specialty item that will just take up space in your kitchen. You can easily make your own and save a little money, plus make your very own flavors. I just measure out the dry pancake mix into a small plastic container, add in whatever mixins I feel like, add water, and microwave.
Tah dah, portable muffin for one and no trip to the store for a special purchase required. They’re just as easy to bring with you to work or keep in your desk for snacks. Just add water and you’re 90 seconds away from a muffin. My favorite flavor is chocolate chip, but you can mix in apple chunks, raisins, blueberries, or anything your heart desires.
I make my own homemade version of Kodiak Cakes Powercakes Pancake and Waffle Mix in a mason jar to use for donuts, baked muffins, waffles, and now these. You can also use the brand name if you prefer, but mine will save your wallet a little stress. #singlemombudget
