  • Can blueberry muffins be frozen? Yes, freeze the muffins in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw muffins in the fridge overnight or on the counter. Heat in the microwave for 15 seconds to enjoy warm muffins.
  • Can I use frozen blueberries? Yes, just stir them in frozen (or else they’ll make the batter purple).
  • Do I have to use liners? We highly recommend muffins liners (we used THESE). If you don’t the batter will stick to the pan making the muffins hard to remove.
