Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins

These cranberry pumpkin muffins are moist, delicious and perfect for fall baking. The sweetness of the cranberries work wonderfully with the smooth pumpkin taste.

They freeze well so you can make extra and save them for another time. Place them individually in plastic wrap and put them in a freezer bag. These muffins are great as holiday gifts for friends and neighbors. Enjoy!

    Joanne, you have taken two of my favorite things and meshed them into one wonderful muffin. When I see cranberries in the stores, I begin to buy them and freeze them so I can have them when I want. I know I will be giving this recipe a try.

    I love cranberries! And since they are a super fruit I don’t feel guilty. I would love to make these for quick morning on the go but would like to use a sweetner like splenda or stevia. Do you think that would work?

  11. Bri says:

    This would be so great for an on-the-go breakfast or an afternoon snack. Cranberries are so delicious.

  12. Kristin says:
