Notes

Storage: Store the cooled muffins in an airtight container at (cool) room temperature for 2 days, the refrigerator for 1 week or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Using Other Milks: If using low fat or nonfat nondairy milk in place of the coconut milk, add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil (e.g., melted virgin coconut oil, avocado oil) and reduce the total amount of milk by 3 tablespoons.
