    SO GOOD! I doubled the amount of cranberries and they turned out amazing. This is my new favourite muffin recipe!

    Great texture! Had no trouble getting these to rise with a nice, rounded top...hooray! Love trying "extras", so included the almond extract, walnuts and about 1/3 cup coconut. I too substitute applesauce for butter or oil in a recipe and have never been disappointed. Used the turbinado sugar (like the raw, coarser sugar) instead of white...gave the batter a bit darker color, but wonderful taste. Thanks so much for a terrific recipe!<br/>By Dee from Oregon
