Excellent Recipe!

This basic recipe is very, very tasty! I made a several additions to the basic ingredients to suit my tastes: - Reduced sugar to 2/3 cup - 2 heaped tbls of plain (sugarless) yogurt - I teaspoon Vanilla extract - a shake of cinnamon - a smaller shake of ground clove - 2 1/2 cups of cranberries (cause cranberries are awesome ;) ) - 2 tbls chia seeds (for a little crunch) - about 1/2 a teaspoon of salt (because I used unsalted butter) - no walnuts (didn't have any on hand) I also converted the batter into a a small loaf and used a Marbled Mascarpone Cream to top it off (found here: ) *Sooooo freakin' good!*

I'm not good at baking. I'm only 16 years old and the only recipe I mastered was chocolate chip cookies. The batter I made came out really thick. It felt more like cookie batter. I put the batter inside the oven and my muffins caved in. I'm unsure if I did something wrong or if the recipe needs to be fixed? Anyway, I hope your muffins turn out good! I, unfortunately, messed up my batch. I'll try harder next time and use this recipe again!

Best Cranberry Walnut Muffins Ever!!

Susan from Murphy, NC

Made these tonite and will be making them again and again, added our own black walnuts and didnt chop the cranberries...came out perfect. Just the right amount of tartness mixed with sweetness and the crunchy texture of the walnuts. This recipe is a real winner.

Very good! Added cherries.

Made these for New Year's Day breakfast. Only change I made was to substitute dried cherries for the walnuts for my husband. They were easy to make and also very good! Will definitely make again.
