Multigrain Blueberry Muffins
If you’ve been following the blog, you already know that my kid is the Muffin Man. He wants to bake muffins every single morning. We’ve tested various recipes and although I’m all for making things from scratch, I swear by the Trader Joe’s Multigrain Pancake Mix as a base for the best multigrain blueberry muffin recipe. These little goodies came out so perfectly moist and delicious. After devouring a few, we put the remainder in a pretty tin purchased at Cost Plus (only $4) and brought them to a friend’s house for a play date. It was the perfect little healthy snack.
2 cups TJ Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup applesauce
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup frozen blueberries barely thawed
Preheat oven at 400 degrees. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients: pancake mix, cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg. Set aside. In a smaller bowl whisk together eggs, apple sauce and vegetable oil. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Add blueberries. Mix together but do not over stir. Scoop batter into well greased mini muffin pans. Cups should be almost full. Bake for 10 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. For a moist muffin, be careful not overcook! Makes 24 – 30 mini muffins.

Adorable! Love the play date idea too – so nice to not show up empty handed and even better when you can arrive with something home made and healthy!
I am a HUGE fan of this product as well – add flaxseed and chopped bananas to it for perfect pancakes. Now another use for my two muffin man kids – I LOVE It!
I would love to try this recipe! But I do not have applesauce – can I leave it out completely or is there something I can replace it with that I might already have in the house?
Kate, You can use 1/2 cup oil instead of the applesauce
I tried this, came it ok, (I thought the spices were in tablespoons not tea spoons so it tasted like nutmeg)TEASPOONS!!!
Hi, I just came across your site and wanted to thank you so much for posting this recipe using TJ’s Multigrain Pancake Mix. I’ve been looking for quick easy recipes using this mix and these mini muffins came out delicious. The whole family gobbled them up. Thank you! If you have anything else using this mix, I’d love to get it!
[...] If you’re going to make bread, measure out all the dry ingredients into a plastic bag, and then simply add the wet ingredients when you’re ready to bake. The same goes for pancakes, waffles and other types of flours and mixes. Measure them out ahead of time, then you only have to mix and cook in the kitchen, and you don’t have to carry around all the different ingredients, taking up valuable space. from: cooking with my kids [...]
