When my food blogger friends suggested a Cranberry week, these Easy Cranberry Orange Muffins popped right into my mind! Besides being easy to make, they are so delish! Seriously a great flavored muffin! Fresh cranberries, oranges and walnuts make delicious muffins that are always a hit with my family and friends!

Tips to making Easy Cranberry Orange Muffins:
- Make a double batch and freeze some for another day.
- These package and ship well! Wrap each muffin in plastic wrap tightly and ship to far away friends and family.
