Cranberry Breakfast Muffins

I’ve had most of the day to myself (well, and with the kitties), because my husband is out hunting with the goal of getting a deer! I never tried deer meat until I started dating him and had no interest in trying it either, but I must be honest and tell you it is actually quite good! If you haven’t tried it and make assumptions about it like I did, throw them out the window and give it a whirl if you find yourself with the opportunity! If he gets one this season I’ll be sure to post his deer chili recipe 🙂

So while he is out hunting I’m enjoying the day by trying new recipes to share with you wonderful people! Plus, I love expanding our menu around here! I started with a breakfast recipe this morning and these cranberry oatmeal muffins were easy to mix up and turned out really well! Not to mention, they added a wonderful aroma to the kitchen while baking, Mm!



I love the cranberries in these muffins; they add the perfect amount of tartness! However, If you really just aren’t a fan of cranberries, you could easily substitute another berry in their place; blueberries would work well with the banana and oatmeal in the muffin! Check out the recipe below for a simple and tasty breakfast! Enjoy!
