Cranberry Orange Muffins with a Cinnamon Streusel

Jump to recipe

Breakfast, on the go snack, or even a treat for the holidays, these Cranberry Orange Muffins are the perfect addition to your day.  Each bite is filled with fresh cranberries, moist, tangy, and bursting with flavor.

Two weeks ago, on the morning of Diwali, my baby nephew was welcomed to this world.  He is the most adorable addition to our family!  While my sister-in-law was pregnant, they nicknamed him Cranberry.  It is in my little Cranberry’s honor that I have dedicated this delicious recipe to him.

Each bite is filled with orange juice, fresh cranberries, and a little cinnamon streusel on top.  With just the right amount of sweetness, and definitely better than the ones bought in store, these muffins are so gratifying.

A Few Tips:

  • If you don’t have fresh cranberries, frozen cranberries work just as well.  If you’re using frozen cranberries, don’t them ahead of time, otherwise it will ruin the batter.
  • Don’t use a mixer for this recipe as it could result in over mixing the batter.  A little elbow grease and a whisk should do the trick.
  • Store these muffins in the fridge for up to 5 days and freeze them for up to 2 months.
