This super easy recipe starts with one of those less than a $1 mixes. I used Martha White, added a few extra ingredients and wha la "Gourmet Muffins". I found this recipe online and did some tweaking to my liking. It's a great muffin to have on hand for those busy mornings when you just don't have time for breakfast. Just grab a muffin, a cup of coffee and run! Hope you enjoy! Inspired from "Thrifty Decorating Blog"
