Can you freeze baked muffins? Good question.
I love to have a warm muffin with my morning coffee. Since I am not a morning person, I can assure you that there is no morning baking happening in my house.
What I do in the mornings is take a muffin out of my freezer stockpile and heat it up slightly in the microwave. The joke running between my husband and me is that I dream of stocking muffins and of having a large-enough freezer to keep bins and bins of muffins. What can I say? I dream big.
Maybe you eat muffins every day like me, or maybe you need other options. Whatever your needs and wants, MOMables can provide you with TONS of options: Check it out!
For a muffin lover like myself, learning how to freeze my muffins has been a money-saver. Not only do I save money from buying the occasional muffin here and there, I now have a freezer stocked with different varieties of muffins that make perfect after-school snacks or even work perfectly in the lunch box.
Muffins that are homemade, made from scratch, and made from real food with ingredients I can pronounce and name. That way, I can always have muffins that are safe for my daughter with her allergies.
I personally have been freezing muffins for a long time now. As soon as I figured out this trick, I always made sure to keep baked muffins in our freezer! I love to be able to pop out one or two at a time and use them whenever I need them, especially these Strawberry Muffins.
To reheat, I typically microwave them for 15 to 20 seconds or put them in the fridge to thaw overnight. A quick 5 seconds in the microwave is all they need if you took them out overnight.
Not only that, but they freeze and reheat wonderfully! So now that you know how to freeze your muffins, you’ll want to double or triple your recipes so you can keep your freezer stocked!
If you choose to freeze your muffins in a freezer-safe bag, make sure to squeeze out any extra air first. Then place that bag inside another freezer-safe bag to prevent freezer burn. Once your bag is empty, you can wash, dry, and reuse your bag for more muffins. Label the bag if desired.
