Cranberry Crumb Muffins

Cranberry Crumb Muffins are a perfect way to use up fresh cranberries. These fluffy muffins are studded with sweet and tart cranberries and topped with a sprinkling of crunchy oat crumb topping.Cranberry Crumb Muffins

Be honest here, how often to you cook with fresh cranberries? Maybe once a year, tops twice, right? I was shocked when I discovered that only 5% of the cranberries grown in the United States are actually sold fresh. The vast majority are turned into juice, cranberry sauce, or dried. And I mean I get it. They aren’t something you can just snack on raw. They take some prep work. But it also makes me sad because fresh cranberries are, in my opinion, one of the prettiest berries out there. Just look at these beauties.Cranberry Crumb Muffins

I always go a little bit nuts when fresh cranberries are in season, buying more bags than I can possibly use before they go bad and end up freezing them. Helpful hint: cranberries freeze fabulously.Cranberry Crumb Muffins

These simple cranberry crumb muffins are a great way to make use of fresh cranberries. The muffins are sweet, but with a tart cranberry bite to them and have a sprinkling of crunchy oat crumb topping. This recipe makes one dozen muffins and would be a great addition to a holiday brunch or gift basket.

I like dried cranberries in some recipes, but you just can’t replace the color and flavor that fresh cranberries bring.
