Reviews for Cranberry Nut Muffins
"Easy to make. I switched walnuts for pecans and loved them."
"Make them at least 1? a week. Everyone loves them!"
"Amazing muffins! With or without the nuts. Yum!"
"They were good but I don't think great. They were not very sweet. A nice muffin for breakfast."
"These were moist and delicious. I added some orange zest for additional flavor. I would have substituted applesauce for the oil if I had it, but will try that next time."
"I used dried cranberrys (I put the cranberrys in a coffee cup with water and zapped for 15 seconds - let them soak - so they swelled up) I ditched the muffin pan and used a loaf pan - turned out even better! next time I will use the mini loaf pans - so I can give the mini loafers away for Christmas gifts for my coworkers and clients!"
"Good muffins, have made several times . Sometimes use part whole wheat flour, oatmeal or bran for the white flour. Have also pureed a whole orange for the juice,"
"These were a little bit tasteless. They seem a little floury. Perhaps a bit of salt or would liven them up. I suspected, based on how the batter tasted that would be the case, so I added a tablespoon of orange zest - still to bland."
"This is a keeper. The flavors are good - I did use 1/3 cup melted butter instead of the vegetable oil. I've never seen a recipe yet that wasn't better with butter in it. The dough was a little more dense than I expected, so I used a small buttered piece of wax paper to level the dough in the muffin tins. If you're looking for the perfect Christmas morning muffin, this is it!"
"I finally made a great muffin! One to rival my favorite local coffee shop. The only thing I did different was to exchange walnuts for pecans and made them in larger muffin tins. They turned out icredible!! I have never been able to make a decent muffin until now."
"I made an eggless version of this using flax seed powder instead of eggs and it came out well. I will definitely try this recipe again but would slightly increase the quantity of sugar if baking it for others, especially those with a sweet tooth."
"These were great! I only had a 1/2 c of cranberries on hand so i added 3/4 chopped apple and they were magnificent."
