Dry Muffin Mega-Mix: In a very large bowl, whisk together all-purpose and whole wheat flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Divide mix into 4 equal portions (about 3 3/4 cups/925 mL each) and pour into re-sealable plastic bags or airtight containers. Store in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.

Mega-Mix Muffins: Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease or use muffin liners in a nonstick muffin pan.
In large bowl, stir muffin mix (~ 3 3/4 cups/925 mL) to recombine and add in any spices from flavour add-ins.

In separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, yogurt, butter and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and sprinkle with any remaining flavour add-ins. Stir just until moistened.

Spoon into prepared muffin pan. Bake for 20 to 25 min or until tops are golden brown and firm to the touch. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 min. Transfer to rack to cool completely.
