Cranberry Banana Maple Muffins

Yum, muffins.  We all know that I love them.  I know, they aren't always the best for you, but hey...a girl likes what a girl likes!  Maybe in addition to being Addicted to Recipes, I am also addicted to muffins!  I actually took a bit of a break from the muffin baking through December - with the holidays and all the places we had to be all the time, baking seemed to take a back seat for a while.  But it's January, and I'm back on track!

I was taking stock in my fridge and came on some cranberries that needed to be used, so these muffins were born!

Cranberry Banana Maple Muffins
Cranberry Banana Maple Muffins | Addicted to Recipes

1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oats (I used quick oats)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3 bananas
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

Preheat oven to 375F.

Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, oats, baking powder, salt).

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (egg, maple syrup, bananas, melted butter).

Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mix to combine.  Fold in the cranberries.

Spoon batter into lined muffin cups.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

VERDICT:
Our oldest told me that these are his "favouristest muffins ever!" - which says a lot for our first time having these.  These were a hit with the whole family.  The sweetness of the maple syrup is there, as is the tartness of the cranberries.  Next time I would probably put in a few more cranberries (on the 1 1/2 cup side).  Enjoy!
