Expert Tips:
  1. Defrost spinach by placing unopened package in a bowl in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. If using a standard muffin pan, additional bake time may be required (about 5 minutes.)
  3. The 5 minute rest time is very important, especially if making a standard sized spinach muffin.
  4. Refrigerator storage: Store muffins in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For best results, reheat in a toaster oven for 2-3 minutes until warmed. 
  5. Freezer storage: Place muffins in a freezer bag in a single layer until frozen solid. After that, move them around as needed. Be careful because they are delicate and spinach will chip away. For best results reheat from frozen for about 10 minutes or until warmed through.
