Kitchen Notes and Tips

This muffin batter is pretty thick. I was able to “pinch” off a small amount and roll it before putting it in my muffin pan.

Using cupcake liners makes it easier to grab a muffin on the run.

If you don’t use muffin liners, carefully run a butter knife around the perimeter of the muffins to help them release from the pan.

FAQ – How should you store muffins?

If you plan on eating them within a few days, store muffins at room temperature covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. You can also individually wrap leftover muffins and place them in a ziptop freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
