Cranberry Sauce Muffins Recipe

"I created this recipe because I'm always watching my weight," notes Glenda Cameron of Landenberg, Pennsylvania. "These muffins are easy to make and have less fat and calories than many others. Occasionally, I'll substitute canned pumpkin for the cranberry sauce, which is also good!"
