Healthy Oatmeal Cranberry Muffins

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

From Ocean Spray flyer I found in my odd collection of clipped out and saved recipes. I made these years ago and found them to have a nice hearty texture and a great balance of flavor between the tartness of hte cranberry sauce and the sugars. I hope you like them too.

This was an unusual recipe for me, I made them to the recipe and I think they are very good not too sweet just nice to have with a cup of tea. I liked the bit in the middle, it's a good idea, I hate when all the good bit's are in the bottom you enjoy it better when you can have a juicy bit when you bite into it, 5 stars from me I would give it more if I could. It's one to keep in the cake tin for visitors, Made for breast awareness 09

I really liked these muffins...I would rather have somehow had the cranberry flavor mixed throughout though, and not just a glob in the middle. When I was making them I was afraid that the batter was looking too "oat-y" but they were delish. Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag.
