How to freeze baked muffins:Freeze baked muffins in a gallon sized ziploc bag. Reheat in microwave for 30 seconds or so.
How to freeze UNBAKED muffins: Place entire tin of uncooked muffins into the freezer. Freeze for about 3 hours. Remove muffins cups and place in a gallon sized ziploc bag. Write baking time and temp on bag. When you want to bake them, place frozen muffin cups into a muffin tin and bake, adding an additional 5 minutes or so to compensate for the frozen batter.
