Cranberry Apple Greek Yogurt Muffins

 Summer is almost over and the same old snacks can be getting boring for the kids, so on with the need for a quick homemade snack to win them over. Muffins are always a win, and they are quick as well. Just like granola bars, muffins are very versatile, with a little adjustment  different ingredient here and there it’s a new variety that the kids can enjoy. 


With tart cranberries and the sweetness of both apples and applesauce you have a well balanced muffin to tide the family over until dinner.  If there’s any left overs- you’d be lucky if you do!- you can put them in the fridge in zip lock bags so the kids can grab these whenever they want. These would be great within lunch boxes or for an on the go morning pick me up if needed.

    The collaboration of apple and cranberry is the best; there are many popular juice brands offering this blend. However, I never thought we can actually include these flavors in Muffins. Very creative idea.

    These look wonderful and I love the combination of apple and cranberry together. I am going to have to make some of these for our Sunday brunch this weekend.

    My daughter is a huge fan of muffins! The combination of cranberry and apple reminds me cool and rainy autumn days. Autumn is my favorite season by the way. Have to give this recipe a try asap!
