Mini Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

A healthier taste of fall in one bite, these mini pumpkin cranberry muffins stay moist thanks to use of Greek yogurt. Plus, they’re guilt-free, with just three grams of fat per muffin and plenty of vitamin A from the pumpkin itself. Cranberries are a welcome add-in with their sweet but subtle tanginess. To make full-size muffins, just double the baking time.
