This is a super easy and inexpensive way to make delicious muffins. Instead of buying the main ingredients like flour, baking soda, and eggs, you can easily buy a $1 Jiffy Muffin box mix and add ingredients. You can use either plain muffins or flavored muffins. I chose banana for this one. For a more healthy option, you can try to find wheat muffin mix.
1 Box of Jiffy Muffin Mix
Fresh Baby Spinach – Blended
Chopped Almonds or Walnuts
Just mix the muffin box, reducing the amount of water due to the consistency of the spinach. Add Almonds or Walnuts.
Line up a muffin pan with cupcake liners and fill them halfway. Cook at about 325 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown. If you don’t have a muffin pan, you can use a small bread pan to slice and serve.
Use this idea for any boxed or packaged inexpensive item such as Rice A Roni, Pasta, Cookie or Brownie Mix. You’re just creatively adding healthier vegetables to give it more substance, flavor, and nutrition – a Great Idea and Practice no doubt!
Jiffy Muffin Mix costs under a dollar and the Corn Muffin mix, even cheaper. If you add main ingredients such as chicken, eggs, or a variety of vegetables, you not only stretch the recipe, but Save a Ton of Money and Time, creating something healthy and delicious.
