Cranberry Apple Muffins Recipe

It's sometimes difficult to get our daughter to eat healthy foods, but she gobbles up these fruit-filled muffins. Although these are a "must" around the holidays, I keep cranberries in the freezer so I can whip up a batch any time of year. —Esther Bowers, Westland, Michigan

"My honey doesn't care for cranberries, so I used only shredded carrots and apples. I also only used 1 cup of sugar (no need for more sugar because I omitted the cranberries), and one teaspoon each of baking powder and baking soda. I also added 1/3 cup rolled oats (not quick). I cooked the muffins 26 minutes. They came out a little darker than the picture, but perfectly cooked (the apples were moist and tender on the inside). I'm going to add chocolate chips to my next batch. These are delicious muffins."

"Amazing taste! My teenage-daughter made them & forgot to add the nuts, eggs & oil (?) - still very good. I can't wait to try them again with all the ingredients this time!"
