Before we lose the ability to buy fresh cranberries I needed to squeeze in one more recipe for you!
I have been sitting on these for awhile so I figured it was time to share them!
I think I may have a few still in my freezer as well!
When I started out keeping my freezer stock with muffins I came up with all different types of variations!
You can make so many different combinations of these muffins that it doesn’t matter what fruit you have at home! You can also store them in freeze and enjoy them for months and months!
- I made these blueberry oatmeal muffins, which are my kids favorites.
- These pumpkin oatmeal muffins ended up being my favorite with the crumb topping!
- Don’t forget about these apple cinnamon oatmeal muffins! Delicious!
So I decided to go with dark chocolate in these because my hubby requested it! He is a big dark chocolate fan and I am so glad too! These turned out way better than I hoped for!
We loved the richness of the dark chocolate with the tanginess of the cranberries. These muffins are not too sweet but just the right amount!
I thought they were a perfect combination with each other! So tell me? What kind of muffin would you make?
