*Marketing Guide
  • Contains milk, eggs, and wheat (flour).
  • If you do not use paper muffin liners, spray the muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Coating blueberries with dry mixture will prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffin.
  • To verify muffins are done, insert a wooden toothpick into the center of a muffin. If wet batter sticks to the toothpick, the muffins need more baking time.
  • Muffins freeze well. Allow muffins to cool completely. Wrap securely in foil, freezer wrap, or place in freezer bags. Label and date. Muffins can thaw safely at room temperature. For more information on how to safely thaw foods, visit foodsafety.gov.
