Frugal Quarantine Muffins
You know what I love about making muffins? They are a great way of using up what needs to be eaten in the fridge. I love that you can make savoury or sweet muffins – and that everything tastes better when it is cooked in a muffin. Plus my boys will eat muffins – even with green things like vegetables in them!
So there is the basic recipe below, then you add one cup of whatever you like. I’ve made a few suggestions below if you get stuck for ideas:
Sweet Frugal Quarantine Muffin Ideas:
