How to store Pumpkin Muffins?

Pumpkin muffins can be kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to a week! Simply allow the muffins to completely cool and sit out for about an hour before adding the container lid and storing. They can also be frozen! If freezing, be sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap, tin foil, and then seal them in an airtight container to avoid any frost damage.

Tips for Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

  • Feel free to adjust the amount of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice!
  • If you’re unsure if the muffins are done, try inserting a toothpick into the middle. If it comes out clean, they’re done!
  • The streusel is much better if serving the muffins right away! We recommend leaving it out if storing for a longer amount of time.
  • Make sure the muffins are cooled completely before storing.
