Cranberry Lemon Curd Muffins

It’s muffin day! I’m channeling my inner muffin making skills to make these yummy holiday muffins. They’re so moist, a little bit healthy (and a little bit decadent) and so so delicious!

I make TONS of muffins for the girls and I’m always trying to combine different flavors together to make new ones. Today’s is all about cranberries and lemon curd. They go together so beautifully with a sweetness that’s just perfect in a regular sized or mini muffin!

This makes a lot of muffins, and they freeze so well so make as many as you can and enjoy them for weeks to come. Happy holidays!
