Nice moist muffins that are full of flavor! They are dense in texture but that makes them perfect with a cup of coffee! Loved the blend of the pumpkin flavor with the dried cranberries. I used a cinnamon/sugar mix for the topping of the muffins. I did omit the nuts as a personal preference. Made for the special event in Healthy Choices tag game.
