  • Cranberry Apple muffins will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. We like to warm them in the microwave for 20 seconds before munching away! 
  • Alternatively, this recipe freezes really well. So don’t be afraid to prep muffins for the entire week! Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds when you’re ready to eat (don’t even worry about thawing)!
