In the past couple weeks, I’ve seen fresh cranberries popping up in my neighborhood grocery stores. I love fresh cranberries – their color, their tarntness, stringing them with popcorn to make tree garland! I couldn’t resist picking up a couple bags.

Cranberry and orange has always been one of my favorite flavor combinations. So, I thought it would be fun to incorporate those into a muffin. Muffins are one of our favorite go-to breaksfast item around here.

With the morning rush of getting the boys up and dressed, lunches made, and Drew off to school – something that we can just grab and go with is a sheer savior sometimes. I think these would be a great easy treat to have on Thanksgiving morning as well. Enough to fill you up, but light enough to leave plenty of room for an early dinner!

    I love cranberries and orange together but it seems like I’ve only ever seen/done it with dried cranberries. I can’t wait to make these!

    Use fresh raw cranberries cut up?

    Is it 1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar, or 2 1/3 Tbsp? These look great, and I want to try them, but I’m not a frequent baker, so I want to make sure that I get the measurements right! Thanks!
