Muffins are an excellent way to increase the amount of whole grains in your family's diet. When you add some nuts and fruit, you increase the nutritional benefits as well. Muffins are portable and can provide a quick on-the-road breakfast source or be part of a paper bag lunch. The key to the texture and moisture content actually comes in the baking process. However, with proper storage, moist muffins will stay that way for several days.

Step 1

Cool the muffins fully if homemade. Leave them in the paper liners.

Step 2

Transfer your muffins to a resealable plastic bag. Close the top of the bag and place it in a cupboard or bread box.

Step 3

Place the muffins into an airtight storage container as an alternative to a bag. Put the lid onto the pan after situating the muffins and then store them in a cupboard or bread box.
