frequently asked questions
yes, you can! i would stick to adding nuts, fresh fruit or nut butters to the mix. i would avoid any frozen fruit as that would change the consistency of the batter.
if you don't want to use gluten free flour, i suggest using regular all purpose flour. any other flour will impact the rise and texture of these muffins.
however, they will bake and still taste delicious if you choose to test other flavors.
the muffins are fully baked when you stick a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
i store these muffins in an airtight container for the first day then put into the fridge if there are any left for up to 5 days. if you'd like to store them for longer, freeze for up to 1 month!
you can store these in the fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for 1 month in an airtight container for both options.
two things! the amount of baking powder and not overmixing the batter. it works like a charm every time!
