These muffins are kinda cool because you can make the batter on one day and bake what you want, then stick the remaining batter in the fridge to pull out as needed over the next week. They make the house smell delightful, and the taste is perfect for a cold morning. Plus, I love having my own convenience foods on-hand!
Once baked, the muffins freeze beautifully, too.
