Recipe Notes

You don't need muffin liners for this recipe, but you could use them if you would like. If you are not using muffin liner spray the muffin cavities with non-stick spray. 

Keep these on the countertop for up to 2 days. I would recommend refrigerating after that and only eating up to 3-4 days after making. 

You can freeze them for up to 3 months.
