Muffins. They make a great breakfast with Greek yogurt or peanut butter, fill the hunger of an afternoon slump, and can even make it as dessert.

The whole cranberries add an awesome tartness and (literal) pop of flavour when they explode in your mouth; do NOT omit them!

Cranberries are high in vitamin C and fibre, plus many antioxidants that may prevent recurring urinary tract infections (UTIs), stomach ulcers and improves dental health by preventing bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract, stomach lining or teeth respectively. Cranberries reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with anti-inflammatory mechanisms, inhibiting platelet buildup, preventing LDL oxidation and reducing blood pressure.

…But okay, fine. If you don’t have cranberries you can also use blueberries or other favorite fruits.

Make up a batch of these and store them in the freezer for rushed mornings or easy lunch additions!
