How To Store Pumpkin Spice Muffins

You can store these muffins on the counter, in the refrigerator, and in the freezer. You can store these pumpkin muffins on the counter at room temperature for 1-2 days if they are placed in a sealed airtight container. Or, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Also, you can freeze these muffins in freezer-safe containers such as stasher bags for 2-3 months.

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Variations

  • Fold In Chocolate Chips: If you want chocolate flavor in these pumpkin muffins, fold some mini chocolate chips into the batter before baking the muffins. We like using mini chocolate chops to disperse chocolate flavor evenly. You can even roughly chop regular-sized chocolate chips and fold them in. Also, you can use sugar-free chocolate chips or vegan chocolate chips.
  • Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice: If you don’t have any pumpkin pie spice on hand you can make your own! Simply combine 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg, and a pinch of ground cloves.
