I have also baked them in these cute nut cups. I loved how they kept their color and the muffins came out beautifully! They didn’t even need to be sprayed with cooking spray.

These muffins freeze beautifully. So if you happen to end up with some extras just freeze for later. This recipe also works for mini muffins.  They make a great grab and go snack.
