Cranberry Clementine oat muffins filled with fruit, nuts, and oats perfect for breakfast on the go.
Cranberry Clementine oat muffins make your morning a little easier. Perfect for that grab and go breakfast.
There are always clementines in the fridge at this time of the year. The grandkids love eating them; as well as the adults. Of late I have discovered that they also taste great in baked goods as well. They not only add great flavor, but they give baked goods a nice moist texture.
Although the clementines would have made a tasty muffin, cranberries were added. Cranberry and citrus are the perfect combination. I love the tartness of the cranberries alongside the sweet clementines.
As I have mentioned time and time again on this blog I am a breakfast person. It all started with my mom. She always made sure that we started out with a good breakfast every morning. I tried to instill the same thing in my own kids, but I don’t think they all got the message.
There are some of them that are not breakfast eaters and being a mom I made the muffins to give to my son that doesn’t take the time to eat breakfast. Well, I did keep some for Mike and myself.
Not only are muffins a great breakfast, but they are simple to make.
The cranberries, clementines, and pecans are chopped and added along with the oats to give great texture to these muffins.
