Even family and friends who aren't fond of wild rice rave about these golden muffins flecked with colorful blueberries and cranberries. They're a terrific take-along treat.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour

Editor's NoteIf using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
