These muffins are so soft and fluffy and so delicious with the roasted pecans on top. A great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving! The sugar amount needed depends on how sweet your cranberry sauce is. You can go up to 1/2 cup if the leftover cranberry sauce is on the tart side.

  • Combine milk, olive oil, leftover cranberry sauce, brown sugar, and egg in a bowl and mix together using an electric mixer. Mix in baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually add flour and oatmeal and mix everything into a smooth batter.

  • Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 21 minutes. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
