How to store sourdough muffins
You can store these muffins in an airtight container for up to 4 days. These muffins do not need to be refrigerated which makes them perfect for a camping or road trip.
Pro Tip: Use a silicon muffin tray or spray your muffin cups with olive oil or coconut oil before adding batter. This will prevent your muffins from sticking.
