So I have realized that being a mom means your mornings are a little chaotic. Trying to take a shower, get dressed, blow dry my hair, then get my son dressed, feed him, and get out the door. Usually I forget to eat breakfast myself. So, I love to have quick grab-n-go breakfasts on hand. For me that usually means Apple Pumpkin Muffins, Morning Glory Muffins, or Lemon Blueberry Scones. Do you sense a pattern?

MUFFINS!

Yup, pretty much love muffins. When I was pregnant with Cason I use to stop almost every morning at a cute little cafe and get this Ginger Cranberry Muffin. It was amazing! The cranberries were perfectly tart and the ginger soothed any nausea I had {a much needed thing during the 1st trimester}. Even though I like the ginger in that muffin, I like the cranberry orange combination much more.  So today I am featuring another delicious muffin recipe, Cranberry Orange Muffins! There is a secret ingredient in these muffins that makes them super moist!

How To Make Moist Cranberry Orange Muffins

To get started, preheat oven to 400º. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

    I live an area known for orange production so always have an abundance this time of year. This recipe was a great way to use up some of the fruit and enjoy a delicious treat.
