A very special thank you to Among Friends Baking Mix for inviting us to join their Francie’s Make It Your Own contest and subsequently selecting us as a runner-up winner back in 2016 for this exact recipe. If you haven’t checked out this amazing company’s products yet, DO IT!!! http://amongfriendsbakingmixes.com/ You’d be missing out if you didn’t.
Their mixes make baking easy and well, honestly, we haven’t met a mix we didn’t like. Being on a strict gluten free diet, we often make so many things from scratch which can become very time consuming! It is such a lifesaver to have a quick mix, that is equally delicious as if from scratch and also safe to eat. Their products are also whole grain and real ingredient based! They are gluten free certified and non-gmo verified (applause). The company, started by two sisters, is also near and dear to my heart because well, they are Michigan based, where we were born and raised. Go Green! P’s favorite mix is Darcy’s Delish Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, and my personal fave is Suzie Q’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, so satisfying and tasty!!! When we serve these tasty oatmeal cookies, even the guests that are not gluten free ask us for the recipe and are ultimately surprised when I reply that it is a purchased mix. Sometimes if we get real lucky, we can find certain mixes here in the south at our local Target, however the products are always available online. The mix we use in our “make it your own” muffin recipe is Francie’s Make It Your Own Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Mix.
