"This is almost the only muffin mix I use any more. Have made all the variations plus some of my own, love love love this mix. Sometimes I am concerned about the amount of butter in which case I use part applesauce without any difference in flavor or texture. This is a great go to recipe, I always have some made up in the pantry."

"We love muffins so I was excited to see this mix. We are trying to get away from making box/bag foods. We haven't tried any of the versions listed, but we made them folding in 1 C of semi-sweet choc chips. They were great!!! I did change the recipe just a little: I only use unsalted butter in baking, and I reduced the salt to 1 t. Like many, we are watching sodium (and hidden sodium) in our foods. What a great gift possibility, I can't wait to give some out. Thanks for sharing:)"
