A sweet and tart muffin topped with a homemade nutty granola. These Cranberry Granola Muffins are sure to be the hit of your holiday brunch table.

I am a carb lover. There is just no way around it. I can’t help it. My breakfast choices always include things like pancakes, french toast, bagels and of course muffins.

I wish I could be an egg lover. Or even better…an oatmeal lover because those are supposed to be healthy carbs. But the closest I have ever gotten to oatmeal for breakfast is in the form of a big Oatmeal Raisin cookie…and when that is the case I usually eat two!
