  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, flax seed, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs, milk, applesauce, lemon juice and canola oil in another bowl until smooth. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just moistened; fold in cranberries. Fill prepared muffin cups about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

These were really good! I made some of the muffins plain, some with dried cranberries (I didn't have fresh ones) and some with dried blueberries. My husband and I both liked the ones with the ...

They’re OK, but not amazing, but probably because they may not have as much sugar and oil as other recipes. Used more cranberries than what the recipe stated and didn’t bother to cut them in ha...

Light and moist, but lacked flavor. I recommend adding zest of one lemon and using all the juice (3 tbsp?) from one lemon. More of the flavor comes out, especially in the cranberries, if you m...

These turned out great! I loved them as did many of my friends.

I do like this recipe because it is easy. When followed exactly, I didn't think it was sweet enough for me. I also didn't like the texture of the cranberries so much. I tried it again replaci...
