If it’s one thing everyone loves, it’s convenience. Well, O and I absolutely adore the simplicity of Aldi Gluten Free Muffin mixes. We add Enjoy Life Mini Chips to their Banana Muffin Mix and substitute Earth Balance ‘butter’ for the topping on their Cinnamon Streusel Muffin Mix. Get creative with your own add ins or leave them be. It’s up to you.
It’s our tradition that on rainy days we bake! No matter what….we bake! O is very regimented. So, the convenience of Aldi’s mixes allows us to keep up with our traditions. Especially in times like this past spring when it rained for 18 days straight in Maryland.
Luckily with a new baby on board in April, we had lots of visitors to help eat said baked goods. We also freeze baked goods often. That way if we are headed to a party, O doesn’t feel left out when it comes time for sweet treats. I’ve even been known to put frosting on them and tell her it’s a cupcake. After all, a muffin is just a cupcake without the frosting.
