Tips / Handy Hints

• Muffins are best eaten the day they are made, but can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. • Muffins can be baked in mini muffin pans (1 tablespoon) for 10-15 minutes or in Texas muffin pans (1 cup) for 20-25 minutes.  Mixture makes 48 mini muffins or 6 Texas Muffins
