I know the name of this recipe is long and has a lot going on but the result is really tasty!  The resulting muffin is short and a little dense, but very moist.  The cranberries add the perfect amount of tart fruitiness.  Though I did learn not to pop fresh cranberries like cherries.  Yes, I probably should have already known that!

You can find the original recipe here, from Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean, but it’s right here as well.
