How To Store Strawberry Banana Muffins

These strawberry banana muffins are perfect for meal prep and you can easily store the leftovers. Here is how to store muffins:

  • On The Counter: You can store leftover muffins in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature. This is ideal if you are going to finish them within 1-2 days.
  • Refrigerate: If you need to store the muffins for longer, place the airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
  • Freeze: You can freeze these muffins for a later time. Just place them in freezer-safe containers or stasher bags. Then, freeze them for 1-2 months.

Expert Baking Tips

  • Cut The Strawberries: For this recipe, cut the strawberries into small even pieces. This ensures that you get an even strawberry flavor throughout with pieces of strawberries in each muffin.
  • Toss Strawberries In Flour: After you wash the strawberries, place them on a towel to dry. Then, cut them into smaller pieces. Make sure they are completely dry before adding them to the batter. To remove any excess moisture from the strawberries, place tnem in a bowl along with 1 tablespoon of flour. Then, lightly mix the strawberries in the flour. This helps remove moisture and prevents the strawberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.
  • Don’t Over-Mix The Batter: Make sure not to over-mix the muffin batter. Over-mixing often leads to more dense muffins, and you want them to be light and fluffy. Also, lightly fold in the strawberries.
  • Use Ripe Bananas: It is important to use ripe spotty bananas for this recipe. Ripe bananas are the most sweet and will add the best flavor to these muffins.
  • Use A Scoop: Use an ice cream scoop or small measuring cup to pour the batter into the muffin cups.
  • How To Know When Muffins Are Done: You will know these muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
  • Let Them Cool: Carefully remove the slightly cooled baked muffins from the muffin pan and place them on a wire rack. Then, let the muffins cool on the wire rack before enjoying them.

Variations

  • Make More Muffins: This recipe makes 12-14 muffins. We have found that this is a great amount to have on hand at a time. However, if you need more muffins or want to make more for meal prep, you can double this recipe.
  • Add Strawberries On Top: We recommend reserving 1/4 cup of the strawberries to add to the top of the muffins once they are in the muffin pan. It makes these muffins beautiful and shows off the strawberries once they are baked.
  • Muffin Liners: You can lightly spray a silicone nonstick muffin pan with oil and pour the batter into the muffin pan. Or, you can place muffin liners in the muffin pan. We recommend using parchment paper liners because the muffins don’t stick to them as much.
  • Add-Ins: You can mix some mini chocolate or white chocolate chips into the muffin batter for a burst of chocolate flavor.
