Cranberries aren't just for Thanksgiving! I am so glad our store still carries fresh cranberries so I can share this easy cranberry muffin recipe to you. Cranberries are not only great in recipes. They have tons of health benefits too.

Step 3: Add the wet ingredients and the fresh cranberries to the dry ingredients. Mix lightly.
The secret to delicious light and fluffy muffins is to not over-mix the batter!!
This is what my muffin batter looked like once it was mixed up.
Step 4: Mix up the streusel topping and sprinkle over each muffin.
Step 5: Add the muffin batter to a muffin tin, filling each muffin cup 3/4 full. Bake at 350 F degrees for 20-25 minutes, depending on how much batter you fill each section with.
Remove from the oven and insert a toothpick into a muffin to test doneness. If there is nothing on the toothpick, they are finished baking. If you see batter or crumbs, they will need to bake a bit longer.
You can use dried cranberries, or switch it up with different fresh fruits.
- A great muffin pan so you can make a lot of these yummy muffins.
- Almond flour is a great source of protein and is perfect in these muffins.
