They were kind of bland. I think I need to find another gluten free recipe for corn muffins.

Do you put the zip baggies in the fridge? I'm guessing the muffins could get moldy if left at room temperature.

I do. If I had a bunch of muffins, I'd put half in a baggie in the freezer, the rest in the fridge.

How do they taste when you defrost them, and how do you reheat them?

I keep any baked goods, bread, cookies, muffins, etc. in the fridge or freezer in ziplocks. Bread will last a long time in the freezer. I would assume muffins would be fine too.. Just gently defrost in the microwave, like 30 seconds on defrost.

I don't have a microwave. Will a toaster oven work for defrosting?

Hi Kitchengoddess,

I would like to advise you to buy a big size tupperware. If you buy a bigger one you can use for so many different purposes. I know they are quite expensive but they will last a lifetime!

I store muffins in the freezer, but wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then store those in a sealed plastic bag, because I've heard this is supposed to help prevent freezer burn. If I'm in a hurry, I'll use the microwave to defrost them, but I've found muffins have the best texture and flavor if they are allowed to defrost at room temperature.

Thank you for the storage suggestions. I don't have a microwave so I probably won't freeze them. Most of the foods I defrost from my freezer don't taste that great.
