Does anyone use these?

My ds just started preschool, and does not have any known allergies, but it is a peanut/nut free school, and he is avoiding nuts. The school does even ask parents to read lables and not send may contains in their individual snacks and lunches!

I have been asked to recommend(and I can provide) a safe muffin mix for the class.

I see that Betty crocker makes banana nut muffins and peanut butter cookie mixes in similar packaging to the other muffin mixes. I guess I just find it hard to believe it is not on shared euqipment. I plan to call, but know the answer will be the same, if there is any chance, blah, blah.

Anybody have experience with the muffin mixes? I did search, but not much on muffins, specifically. Becaue my dd has egg allergy as well as PN/nuts, I have little experience with using mixes in general. Thanks! becca

We use Betty Crocker muffin mixes all the time. Never a problem, and I trust General Mills labeling (GM owns Betty Crocker).

becca, my son eats the chocolate chip ones like crazy. He would eat 12 a day if I let him. Never any problem.

My daughter is PN/TN and sesame allergic and she LOVES the blueberry muffins. She's eaten them VERY often with no problems. I just bought the apple cinnamon version too!

I make a couple of specialty muffins with the chocolate chip mix that are fantastic.
The first is raspberry chocolate. I just chop some frozen raspberries and add then right in to the batter.
The other is mocha. I add hot, double-strength decaf (I serve these to the kids)instead of water. The chocolate chips melt into the batter. Then I add more choclate chips after it has cooled enough for the chocolate not to melt. Yum!!

I use the Dark Chocolate Version.
We add about 1/2 c. of safe semi-sweet choc. chips to the mix.
The kids love 'em at school.
