Cranberry Orange Muffins

Cranberry Orange Muffins

I happen to LOVE cranberry orange bread, so creating this healthified version and turning it into muffins was a natural progression.  The reason for muffins is that it is easier to maintain your portion sizing with muffins.  This recipe makes 24 muffins, so you can keep out what you need for one serving and then freeze the rest.  End of temptation!

They are also a delicious addition to your holiday breakfast!  Yummy, a steaming cup of coffee and one of these delicious cranberry orange muffins sounds pretty much like heaven to me!

This delish recipe is found on page 105 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.
