Time-Saving Breakfast Tips {Blueberry Muffins and Waffles}

Whether you are a stay at home mom with littles running around, a momma on the go with a time card to punch or a combination of the two, here are a couple of time-saving recipes for Blueberry Muffins and Waffles designed to make your time in the kitchen more efficient and the food on your table more enjoyable.

These recipes are for zip top bags. I prepare about four at a time and store them in a basket inside our cabinet. When we are running short on time or I just want to eat breakfast quickly, I grab a bag from the cabinet and within minutes have muffins in the oven or waffles on the griddle. This has been a major time saver and makes motherhood operate with more efficiency.

Blueberry Muffins

First:

Using a zip top bag, write the following ingredients on the outside:  

In a one cup measuring cup – 1/3 cup oil, 1 egg, fill to top of cup with milk

¾ cup blueberries

Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes

Next:

Place inside the bag:

1 ½ cups flour

¾ cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

When you are ready to bake your muffins, place the ingredients from inside the bag in a bowl. Add the ingredients written on the outside of the bag. Stir well. Place in greased muffin pans. Bake at 400 for approximately 15-20 minutes.
