Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for this recipe myself – it’s one that I pinched off my Mum a few years ago (and have made every couple of months ever since!).

The best thing about these muffins (about from how darn delicious they are!), is that they’re freezer-friendly – which is perfect because you can whip up a batch, eat a few while they’re fresh from the oven and then freeze the rest for quick and easy snacks.

Unless you’ve got a big family or are feeding a crowd, I’d highly recommend freezing your leftover muffins. Muffins are one of those things that are always best eaten on the first day or two – so if you don’t think you’ll get through all 12 straight away, pop them into the freezer (that way they’ll be just as fresh as when they came out of the oven!).
