  • Place paper muffin liners into the muffin tin and spray them with vegetable oil. Spoon the batter into a muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean and the tops are golden brown. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes if the toothpick comes out wet with batter.

Notes

Storing the muffins, you can store vegetable muffins in an air-tight container, lined with paper towel to absorb the moisture. Muffins will last for 3 days in the refrigerator. After that they go stale. 
To freeze the muffins, these muffins are easily freezable. Place them in Ziploc bags and try to get out as much air as you can. They should be good for 2 months.
To reheat the muffins, my favourite way to reheat the muffins is in microwave, 30 seconds to 1 minute. But you can also place the muffins on a baking sheet and reheat them in the oven. Pop them in the oven  350F/177 C for 10-12 minutes. Always thaw frozen muffin before reheating. The Best way to thaw frozen muffins, is in the refrigerator overnight.
