Cranberry Banana Muffins

Cranberry Banana Muffins make a fueling breakfast options when you just need something on-the-go.
Wanna know the two things that help me de-stress the most–>

  • Exercise
  • Cooking

Betcha couldn’t have guessed that. It’s true. If I’m strung up after a long day I’d much rather take a spin class or spend some time preparing a healthy delicious dinner then sit on my couch.

Don’t get me wrong. I love cozy couch nights. They just don’t help with my anxiety.

So Saturday in between my errands and studying.. I took a break to stay sane and made some yummy treats.

All about the added benefits.

I had a bag of cranberries sitting in my fridge since I took it back to school after Thanksgiving.

I wasn’t sure EXACTLY what I wanted to make. But I knew I wanted something sweet. Something filling. And something healthy.

Bingo-bango.. these are the results!
