Apple Cranberry Muffins

Oats and fruit keep these muffins wholesome, while spices and a dusting of sugar keep them appealingly sweet. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined for tender, rustic muffins.


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) Danish Creamery Butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped peeled apples
  • ½ cup halved fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar


  • Heat oven to 425° F. Butter 18 muffin cups.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and cinnamon; mix well. Stir in rolled oats and brown sugar.
  • In a medium bowl, beat butter, milk, sour cream and eggs until well blended. Add to dry ingredients; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in apples and cranberries. Fill buttered muffin cups ¾ full. Sprinkle sugar evenly over muffins.
  • Bake at 425° F for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
