Cranberry muffins will quickly become one of your favorite recipes.

Cranberry muffins

My family loves anything with cranberries and we eat them all year. We like them in salads, desserts, muffins and even like the cranberry sauce in the can. These muffins are wonderful with coffee or milk for breakfast or a snack anytime. They are wonderful to serve your guests and family during the holidays. The chocolate chips really add to the flavor of these muffins and the cranberries are so pretty.

Cranberry muffins are delicious for any event or gathering.

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Note: You can just sprinkle these with powdered sugar or add the glaze below of leave plain. We like them with the glaze. I have not tried them with frozen cranberries but see no reason why you could not use the frozen ones. These muffins keep well for several days and can be reheated in the microwave. I keep them in a tupperware plastic container in the fridge.

Glaze for muffins:

3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)
Whisk together and drizzle over muffins. Can add more sugar or more milk to get the consistency you like.
