Cranberry, orange and almond muffins

Filled with fresh cranberries, these muffins have a lovely bright orange color thanks to the fresh oranges they contain. Both soft and light, almonds give them a touch of sweetness and crunch that balances the tangy side of cranberries. 

Take advantage of Thanksgiving to serve them to your family!
