Who doesn’t love a Muffin Monday? Save yourself the expense – both monetarily and calorically – by avoiding the glass cases and bake your own reasonably nutritious and tasty muffs. I promise you this ain’t no GOOP shit. We’re just jshooshing up a box recipe for real. I like the Krusteaz Fat Free Wild Blueberry mix because you don’t need to add anything but water. In a pinch, this mix is super easy and crowd-pleasing without further embellishment. But if you want your muffins to be more, and I know you do, consider these simple additions.
Chia seeds are one of those annoyingly ubiquitous health food items that everyone with a mason jar must have to perfect their temple. And yeah, we are talking about the same stuff from the sprouting Chia Pet commercials, “Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia.” Rich in Omega-3, manganese, calcium, and phosphorus these seeds will also add some fiber to your muffins without fucking up the texture.
Multiply and Diversify the Berries
The puny limp-dick berries in that little sad tin scream box mix. Add some fresh blubes, blackberries, or any kind of berry you like hunny. More berries = a more magnificent Muffin Monday.
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
For some muffy glamour, create a sparkly crunchy top. Mix cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle on top of your muffins before baking. I can’t defend the sugar, but we all know cinnamon has a number of valuable anti-cancer and blood-sugar stabilizing properties. This step adds an interesting textural difference that makes for memorable Monday Muffins.
