Make these muffins at home before heading out on your camping trip. They can be stored up to 3 days in a container.

We don’t suggest keeping these muffins on hand longer than 3 days because they are so moist. And be sure not to store them in direct sunlight.

Our favorite way of having muffins for breakfast is to slice them in half and spread peanut butter or nut butter on each half. Not only does this make the muffins more filling and satisfying, it also boosts the protein for the meal.

For warm muffins, we suggest using a low-wattage toaster oven in your RV to heat them up. For tent camping, consider wrapping them in foil and placing near the campfire for a few minutes.

These muffins are great to bring on any Fall camping trip!
