Ode to Muffins (with Recipe!)
I don't know about you but I could eat muffins everyday! Almost cake-like, they are the perfect snack, breakfast even dessert. There are so many add-ins and kinds that the possibilities (and tastes!) are endless! Some of my favorites are Aldi's blueberry box mix (best box mix seriously!), any kind of chocolate/chocolate chip (because I have a serious sweet tooth), raspberry or strawberry rhubarb in the summer, poppy seed (see bread recipe here) apple cinnamon and banana! That's a lot of favorites :)
We send these along with our Right Relief Quiche meal. They are hearty and also freeze well.
