Warm muffins on a wire rack for a few minutes to cool.

To keep your muffins fresh, wrap in plastic wrap or keep in an airtight container.

If you’d like you can add maple syrup, peanut butter or chocolate chips to your batter.

To Keep a Batch of Muffins Fresh, Follow These Simple Steps:

Allow the muffins to cool to room temperature before storing them. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge: You can store the muffins at room temperature for up to 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days. If storing in the fridge, bring them to room temperature before eating them or heat them up in the oven or microwave.

If you want to store the muffins for longer than a week, consider freezing them. Wrap each muffin individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and then place them in a resealable freezer bag. Muffins can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.

Can I use frozen fruit instead of fresh for strawberry banana muffins?

Yes, you can use frozen fruit instead of fresh for strawberry banana muffins. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, if you’re using frozen fruit, make sure to thaw it completely and drain off any excess liquid before adding it to the muffin batter. This will help prevent the muffins from becoming too moist or soggy.

Secondly, frozen fruit may change the texture and consistency of the muffins slightly, so you may need to adjust the baking time or temperature accordingly. Keep an eye on the muffins as they bake and use a toothpick or cake tester to check for doneness.

Using fresh fruits will typically yield the best results in terms of flavor and texture, but if fresh fruit is not available, frozen fruit can be a suitable substitute.

How do I prevent healthy strawberry banana muffins from sticking to the pan?

Use a non-stick cooking spray, butter, or vegetable oil to grease the muffin tin thoroughly, making sure to coat the bottoms and sides of each muffin cup.

You can use muffin liners made of paper, silicone, or foil. These liners will keep the muffins from sticking to the pan and make them easier to remove.

Let the muffins cool in the tin for a few minutes before attempting to remove them. This will help them firm up slightly and reduce the risk of them falling apart or sticking to the pan.

If the muffins are still sticking to the pan, run a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them before trying to remove them.
