I always buy the Aldi gluten free baking mix. It’s an excellent product and priced right. I make all kinds of muffins similar to yours and various pancakes. My favorites are pumpkin with chocolate chips and banana with blueberries and chocolate chips. I sometimes add a heaping tablespoon of protein powder also. Take care.

I love the Aldi products, my son is gluten-free so I buy that one when I’m baking for him too.

This is such a great recipe to have on hand now. I always have a box of Bisquick in my pantry and flour can be hard to come by at our grocery store these days. Totally trying this recipe!

Such a great idea! Will be making these muffins ASAP.

Ooooh, I haven’t yet made muffins during the last 6 weeks we’ve been all together at home. This looks great – thank you.

these were great! I had a box of protein pancake mix that tasted…horrible! Used it for this and it was perfect!! I added a dash or cinnamon and vanilla extract as well. Half the batch also added raisins. Can’t wait to make again!
