How to store these double fudge banana muffins:
- Refrigerator-my family always stores all fruit desserts in the fridge. I have stored them in a sealed Tupperware container on the table room temperature before. However, they developed a weird film on them, so I would not recommend that. They will keep longer in the fridge too. They do tend to dry out after a while, so it is best to try and eat them while they are fresh.
- Freezer-I have not tried freezing these. If you do try it, let me know how it goes!
