Cranberry Orange Muffins

Remember the gift jars my daughter gave me for my birthday? This recipe was in one of the jars,too. She found the recipe on line from Daphne Oz.

If you love the nutty flavor of whole wheat, like I do, you will love these! They are chock full of good for you ingredients. The cranberries and slight hint of orange were a delicious combination.

 I put a few pecans and some brown sugar on top of each muffin before I baked them. 

Warm out of the oven with some butter, they were a real treat!
