"Growing up a friend's mother used to make these every fall. They are the perfect breakfast muffin, not too sweet with the tartness of the cranberries."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar in a bowl. Beat vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture to make a batter; gently fold apple and cranberries into batter. Pour into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes.

I think there is an ingredient missing from this recipe. When followed exactly, the consistency is like a streusel topping. I added 1/2 c. 2% milk to it and will see how they turn out.

Just made these for the first time this morning and they were wonderful, although I too made a few changes. I didn't have any eggs so I substituted one of the eggs for 1/3 cup of applesauce and ...
