All-Purpose Muffin Mix
- 8 c. flour (we use 3 c. oats, 2 c. white flour, 3 c. white whole wheat)
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/3 c. baking powder
- 1 T. salt
- 2 t. cinnamon
- 1/2 c. shortening or butter*
*You can use either; I prefer butter, but this means during the warmer months, when my house is warmer, I have to store the mixes in the freezer.
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter. If you do this in a food processor, your oats will become oat flour. Divide into storage containers or ziplock bags. Makes 4 batches (~2.5 cups mix each).
For baking, add:
- 1/2 c. applesauce or mashed banana
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 c. milk
- other ingredients as you wish (nuts, raisins, blueberries, etc.)
