Lemon Zest - Cranberry Muffins

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
12 ingredients

I found this recipe somewhere a few years ago; it's pretty much my favourite muffin recipe. Besides being relatively low calorie (especially when compared to anything you're going to buy in a cafe), it's absolutely delicious!I'll warn you that it's not a super-sweet muffin, and that the cranberries are the real stars - I usually add more than the recipe calls for.Without the lemon zest, these lose their great texture, so don't leave it out.
