Pumpkin, Cranberry, and Snickerdoodle Muffin Recipes | 12 Days Of Gift Ideas


The holidays are a perfect time to whip out the mixing bowls and create something delicious for people we care about. Especially for neighbors and family gatherings, baking up some delicious muffins are an easy way to create something thoughtful. I have three muffin recipes that I go back to year after year and today I'm happy to share them with you. In classic holiday flavors, these pumpkin, cranberry and snickerdoodle muffins can become a part of your holiday traditions as well.



Pumpkin, Cranberry, and Snickerdoodle Muffin Recipes

These three muffin recipes are perfect flavours of the season and easily enjoyed by many. I usually make all three recipes in one afternoon and mix and match the muffins in tins for family and neighbors. I've ordered the recipes in order of lowest to highest temperature so you can increase the temperature while preparing for the next recipe. I find that saves the most time instead of waiting for things to cool between batches. They're moist, delicious, plant based, and easy to make.
