Meatless Monday: Cranberry Muffins

After making a delicious pumpkin cranberry risotto, I still had plenty of cranberries left so I decided to try my hand at cranberry muffins. While I thought the cranberries we a bit too sour this way, Zeronic adored these muffins so I really want to share them with you all. I found these on Yummy in my Tummy, but because that is a Dutch site, I will translate the recipe below that I adapted slightly.

Cranberry Muffins (makes 12)
- 150 gr fresh cranberries
- 265 gr flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 160 gr cane sugar
- 240 ml milk
- 1 egg
- 85 gr butter
- pinch of salt

In a large bowl, miks flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Melt the butter and mix with the milk and egg. Add wet with the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon. Add the cranberries and stir lightly until mixed. Pour the matter into a muffin tin. Place it in a preheated oven on 200 degrees for 15-18 minutes. (180 degrees for a microwave oven). You can sprinkle powdered sugar on top for a decorative effect.

This post is part of Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.
MMMM is a weekly carnival dedicated to those interested in improving their personal health and the health of the planet by reducing meat consumption one day a week. Every Monday you have a chance to feature a link to something meatless. It doesn’t have to be a recipe {although that would be nice}, it can be a picture of a meatless meal you ate that week, an interesting article you read about meat consumption, a post on your blog about going meatless, perhaps a post on someone else’s blog you found helpful, anything Meatless Monday appropriate.

  1. I still have to use up some cranberries as well..! I may try to veganize this recipe -- if I'm brave enough ;)
