Not too sweet, these delicious pumpkin and cranberry muffins would make a great snack or brunch offering. They're best served warm, and they also freeze well.

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

Great recipe, Member CarolVachon

These pumpkin cranberry muffins are terrific. I substituted 1/2 cup of flour with whole wheat flour and held back on a few tablespoons of the sugar so that I could sprinkle large sugar crystals on top prior to baking. I'll definitely make this again
