- Storing: Make sure to store your muffins in an airtight container if you are not eating all of them right away. Keep in mind that muffins have a short shelf life and should ideally be eaten on the day you bake them.
- Shelf life: Your muffins will stay good for a few days if stored correctly.
- Freezing: If you like, you can freeze your muffins in an airtight container or freezer bag. They will stay good for several weeks. You can thaw them in the microwave but they will taste better if you let them thaw slowly at room temperature.
- Adding dry ingredients: If you have the patience, it pays off to sieve the dry ingredients while you are adding them. It will ensure you do not end up with lumps in your batter.
- Adding flour: To make sure you don’t over-mix or damage the structure of the batter when adding the flour, you can use a whisk to mix it in bit by bit.
- Using eggs: Make sure your eggs are still good before you use them. How? check out the article ‘Is my Egg still fresh?’

Nutritional Information per Portion
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
