You know I love to make muffins for the kids. It’s one of those made from mom, I cared enough to make sure you have a good breakfast foods, that they can grab on the run.

I have 2 children that love Cranberries. They will fight over the cranberry jelly and the cranberry casserole at holidays. My youngest can sit on the sofa, after school and eat an entire bag of Crasins. I knew these muffins would be a huge hit with them.

I originally shared this over at  Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen. She was one of my first foodie friends and she’s amazing. She’s even written her own cookbook! While over at Carrie’s be sure to check out her Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake, her Cappucino Chocolate Biscotti and her Oatmeal Toffee Cookies. Oh, and you can also find my Cinnamon Swirl Bread there.

  15. Congrats to your friend Carrie and her book. I wish her lots of luck:)LOVE the muffins!

  16. Tried these today (Dec 6/14): I was looking for a recipe that used dried cranberries and chocolate, as no one here will eat ‘just’ cranberries in their muffins except me. I love oats, too, so they were a bonus. The muffins were excellent and fast to make. Oh, everyone liked them btw! Notes: I mixed the oats in with the dry ingredients as oats were missing from the instructions, fyi, :-), I added the dark chocolate chips (the same as bittersweet?) and cranberries to the dry ingredients, too, and I let the batter sit for 5 minutes after I’d added the wet ingredients to the dry to allow the oats to soften in the liquid. I didn’t have buttermilk, so I put a Tbsp of fresh lemon juice in a measuring cup and added milk to the 3/4 Cup mark, then I let it sit to sour while I prepared the other ingredients. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
