Loved this recipe. We used 1 cup of frozen whole cranberries since we didn't have cranberry sauce and multi grain flour since we didn't have whole wheat flour. They turned out great.

Thumbs up from every member of my family for this one! I omitted the cranberry sauce because I didn't have any and the muffins still had a good cranberry taste to them. The extras (I made a double batch) froze beautifully too and warmed nicely in the microwave for our weekday breakfasts on the go.

Good! A healthy low fat muffin that even the kids enjoyed. Dried cranberries and a dollop of cranberry sauce make the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
