    How Long Do Chocolate Chip Muffins Last?

    Once you have baked these cookies, let them cool to room temperature and store them in an airtight container. Place a paper towel underneath and on top of the cookies to absorb any moisture and they will keep for 4 to 5 days.

    You can also freeze the muffins, wrap them individually and they will keep for three months. Thaw them at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours. If you like them warm, place them in a pre-heated oven at 350ºf for 3 minutes.

    How Do You Know When The Muffins Are Done?

    These muffins will take around 18 minutes to bake. You can check for doneness by lightly touching the top a muffin, it should spring back to shape. You can also insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean then they are ready. Because some ovens run hotter (and cooler!) it’s best to check your muffins a couple of minutes before they are due to be ready.
