Homemade Gift Idea: Muffin Mix!


Need a simple and inexpensive gift idea that your family, friends, and coworkers will love? One of my favorite homemade gifts is a baking mix! Simply measure out the dry ingredients for your recipe, put them into a jar or bag, add a bow and attach some baking instructions, and voila! A cute and homemade gift.

Remember my delicious Whole Wheat Peanut Butter & Jelly Cereal Muffins? Here’s how to make them into a homemade muffin mix gift.

Step 1: Prepare Your Package/Jar

Layer the following in a jar or bag (if you use a paper bag as seen above, put the ingredients in a ziplock so it’s airtight): 2 cups Erewhon Rice Twice cereal, 1 & ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour, ½ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda.

Step 2: Prepare Your Label/Instructions

Here are the instructions to print (or hand write) and place on package for recipient:




The beauty of this gift idea is that you can use it for virtually any baked good recipe – for example, homemade cookies or brownies in a jar are also popular. Another idea is to make a huge batch of homemade granola (this recipe looks yummy!) to give out in jars to your friends. The sky is the limit!

Have you ever given a homemade gift? What was it? I always love new homemade gift ideas!
