Notes & Options:

There are lots of ways to modify these cranberry muffins to spice them up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:

– Using fresh cranberries is always best but they can be a bit tart which is why many people use dried cranberries in their recipes.

– Add some nuts to the batter give these muffins a satisfying crunch. I recommend walnuts or almond slivers.

– Raisins work just as well as dried cranberries if you don’t have any on hand.

Make it Healthy – Replacing the sugar in the batter with granulated sweetener will ensure your muffins are sugar free and purely a starch food.
