I’ve seen these muffins alllllllll over the blogging world. I kept thinking, “boy I better try those if they are that ridiculously popular.” So I did. The day we moved I made a bunch of these muffins and I thought they were, ok. Well, no, I thought they were yummy, but nothing spectacular. I needed fruit or chocolate or some kind of topping. They really were tender, which is VERY important to me, but they just weren’t anything fantastico. I still think they are worth a try by all of you. Maybe you don’t need all of that extra stuff like I like. Let me know if you’ve tried them and what your thoughts are.

Can You Freeze Muffins?

You should cool muffins completely before freezing.

Wrap them well in plastic wrap and foil or place them in a heavy duty freezer bag.

Freeze for up to 3 months.

Can You Reheat Muffins?

Place unwrapped muffin on napkin, microwave-safe paper towel or plate.

Microwave on HIGH about 30 seconds for each muffin.

To reheat in oven, heat foil-wrapped muffins at 350°F 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the muffins.

  • I have seen these around the web as well and wondered if they were worth all the hype. I bet that a little chocolate would really kick them up a notch! Congrats to your giveaway winner!
