These muffins can be kept at room temp. for about 2 days or frozen for up to 1 month. Wrap each muffin individually before freezing to help prevent freezer burn. Then place them in a resealable plastic bag or airtight container.

I have also added fresh blueberries to these muffins and they turned out just as delicious.

    The ingredients call for milk and dried cranberries but there is no mention of either in the directions. - 11/2/08
