Apple Cranberry Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Donna Matthews

These muffins are part of our Thanksgiving tradition. Since we have many dishes for this holiday, I often make these muffins in mini-muffin pans and bake them only half as long.

Thanks for a delicious and flexible recipe! I used whole-wheat flour, added 1/4 c ground flax, apple sauce instead of oil, yogurt instead of sour cream, and 1 cup each of apples (1 large Cortland) and cranberries. My only change would be to double the cinnamon. These will definitely be remade.
