Another cranberry recipe! I can’t get enough of the tart little berries that are found in abundance this time of year. I know you can buy cranberries in the frozen section year round but I like them best fresh. This time I decided to pair the cranberries with apples. And let me just say, it was an excellent decision! The tartness of the cranberries pairs so well with the sweetness of the apples. And what says fall better than apples and cranberries? And the best part of these muffins is the CRUNCHY crumb topping. Now, you’re wondering “how did I get it to be so crunchy?” Grape Nuts cereal! Oh my, I was so proud of myself to think of that. I was hoping that the muffins would be as good as I was thinking they would be…and I was RIGHT! The soft, crumbly, tart muffins paired so so so well with the crunchy, sweet, crumbly topping. I am excited to use Grape Nuts in my future baking. I’m thinking I want to try them next in a slow cooker apple crisp recipe. If anything can stay crisp for a long time it’s Grape Nuts. I’ll let you know if it works out (maybe I’ll even throw some cranberries in the apple crisp! Oh yeah, baby)!
