This easy Cranberry Pecan Muffin recipe is perfect for breakfast or a quick snack.
What Thanksgiving traditions are you looking forward to? We like to spend time together as a family–preferably outdoors with the gorgeous Virginia foliage.
We also love cooking together, trying a new dish or two each year, and making new memories. What time do you typically eat your big meal?
If you’re a family that enjoys your Thanksgiving meal early in the day, you’ll need some tasty breakfast or brunch recipes to hold everyone over until it’s time to feast.
These Cranberry Pecan Muffins have both a chewy and crunchy texture and will satisfy all ages on Thanksgiving morning!
These muffins are so quick and easy to pull together, and the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans are the perfect combo.
Enjoy a Cranberry Pecan Muffin with a hot cup of tea or coffee on Thanksgiving morning or any time of the season! If you’re looking for more variety, try my Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins or Banana Chocolate Chip Bread.
Want to bring some love to a friend or neighbor? A basket of these muffins will show you care.
These muffins can also be made in mini-size. Just adjust the baking time down to 15 minutes. My kids love them in their lunch boxes or as an after-school snack!
