    Posted by  ·  December 27, 2012

    Make a mix of these muffins! Keep a few jar recipes on hand to save time when you want to quickly whip up something something homemade.  One of my favorite jar recipes is Peppermint Brownies in a jar. You might also like these cookies in a jar. All my  jar recipes come with printable labels so they also make great gifts!

    Print the labels on 1-up sticker paper, available at Kinko’s or OfficeMax. They will sell this sticker/label paper by the sheet. You can even email them the PDF and they can print for you. This will give the best quality label.

    Gather some baking cups and twine or ribbon.

    Place lid on jar. Stick instruction to top of lid. Place a stack of baking cups over lid, fasten with ribbon or twine.


    Now you can treat your friends to yummy muffins with they need them with this jar mix!

      Curious on how long the mix is safe to keep before someone makes the muffins?

        Becki check all the expiration dates on the ingredients. It should last at least that long.

      Hi...I can't seem to get the labels to print. Don't know what the problem is, your other labels for pancake mix print fine. Maybe you could email me a pdf for the muffin labels. Thanks so much!

      Directions: Empty bag, mix with 1/4 cup butter to make crumb topping, set aside. Mix rest of jar contents with 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla & 1 egg. Put batter into 12 baking cups and sprinkle crumb topping on top. Bake at 400º for 15 minutes.

      Hi, I too tried to click download, it just took me to the picture of the jar, no recipe/instructions/printable. I have no clue what to add to the dry ingredients, what temperature or how long to bake. Thanks for your help! And thanks for sharing!

      I attempted to click on the download to get the cooking instructions but nothing came up. Can you tell me how to get the instructions.

      This is too cute and I would like to make it for my friends bday but I would like better instructions. I have all the ingredients but I need some additional information. I'm slightly confused as in after I mix all the ingredients what would the instructions be for my friend to bake them? A quick response would be greatly appreciated as her bday is around the corner.

      Thank you!

        Hi Becki, When you click on the download (above the picture) you will see that the download has a circle with instructions that you cut out and put on top of the jar to tell how to make the muffins. Hope this helps.
