Cranberry Pecan Muffins

I love a muffin and a coffee as a quick and easy breakfast. It’s great when you need to grab and go. With the holiday season now upon us, I’m enjoying these festive Cranberry Pecan Muffins. I had a bunch of dried cranberries to use up so I figured why not try them in a muffin? Delish!

The dried cranberries add a little bit of chewiness while the pecans give an added crunch. The muffins aren’t overly sweet which is one reason why I like eating them for breakfast.

If you’re not a fan of pecans, use a different nut or leave them out altogether. They’ll still taste yummy.
