To Make the Jarred Muffin Mix
Gather the ingredients
Pour sugar into a 1-quart wide-mouth canning jar.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour half into the jar.

Add remaining flour mixture. Screw lid on and add a tag with instructions, or tuck instructions into the jar.
Instructions for Making Blueberry Muffins
Gather the ingredients.
Whisk together the eggs, butter, milk or buttermilk, and vanilla.
With a wooden spoon, stir in blueberry muffin mix just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Spoon batter into greased muffin pans, filling each muffin cup about 3/4 full. If desired, sprinkle tops with sugar or cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 375 F for about 25 minutes.
Makes 18 to 24 muffins, depending on size of muffin cups.
- When creating your jarred muffin mix, you can add the dried blueberries right into the mixture without the bag, but they tend to sink into the dry ingredients. The bag will give the mix more of a layered look.
