Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins

Pumpkin and cranberry are two great flavors to enjoy for the holidays! I really like these Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins because they have dried cranberries, golden raisins, chopped pecans, and spices mixed in the batter—they just seem perfect for this time of year!

Cranberry Banana Bran Bread

After making some Apple-Bran Muffins, I wanted to use some All-Bran® cereal in a quick bread recipe to see how that would turn out.

They add a tasty little punch to the overall flavor. The bread just wouldn’t be as good without those dried cranberries!

Pecans are always a great compliment to these flavors, and although I like all kinds of nuts, I tend to gravitate toward pecans more in the autumn. So I was excited to receive some complimentary pecans from family-owned Sunnyland Farms to use in my baking, and I decided to make these Cranberry-Pecan Blondies.
