Best way to freeze muffins?

Looking for a way to freeze muffins without having taste stale when I thaw them or from getting freezer burn. I was thinking if there might be good Ziploc freezer bags or containers or anything. Also, how long can they keep in freezer? Thanks

  1. I usually cool mine for about 15 minutes on a rack at room temperature. Then I double wrap each muffin individually with plastic wrap and then put them into a gallon zip-lock bag. In order to prevent the freezer burn we usually eat ours within 3-4 weeks of baking them.

    1. I do the double wrapping in plastic & into zip lock bag also; you can use covered freezer containers as well. Bread products usually keep for three months in the freezer.

      1. Agree with the previous posters - I freeze muffins often with the double wrapping and bagging. I find they taste best if I underbake them slightly and then finish off the baking after defrosting - makes them taste fresher in my opinion, even though it does take more time.
