Gingerbread Muffin Recipe FAQ
You can make muffins moist by adding fat to them. Butter, oil or even alternatives like applesauce and yogurt can help add a moist texture to muffins.
Different muffin recipes bake at different temperatures. Most muffins bake between 350 & 400 degree.
You can make muffin mix ahead of time, but we don’t recommend it. Muffin mix is best when baked right after being mixed together.
Muffins sink after baking if they’re underdone. Muffins can also sink if oven temperature is off!
How to store Gingerbread Muffins
It’s best to store these healthy muffins in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Keeping them in the refrigerator helps to maintain freshness.
You can freeze these muffins. They freeze super well, so double the batch and freeze the extras! I like to store them in a ziploc freezer bag, or large container.
To defrost the muffins I will either take them out of the freezer and put them in the refrigerator the night before I want to eat them, or you can pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds until they are warm.
These healthy muffins are SO delicious and perfect for the holiday season. You’re going to love them!
