I recently got to try the muffin mixes that Rainy Day Foods sells.  Besides the Basic Muffin Mix, they have added three flavored ones:  Lemon Poppy Seed, Bran, and Banana.  They were so easy to make!  You just measure out the desired amount of mix, add water and bake.  I like this because even my kids could make them.  For added texture you can add a teaspoon of oil.  You could also add nuts, fruit or granola for added flavor.  I tried all three and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were.  I made the Bran with just water, the Poppy Seed with the added oil, and the Banana I made into a loaf.  My family really enjoyed all three.  They especially liked how moist and flavorful they were.  Rainy Day Foods sells these mixes in a #10 can.  They could be used for breakfast or a snack and would be great to take camping. These mixes are something you could keep on your pantry shelf or in your food storage.  I know I will be keeping some in mine.
