Brown Butter CranApple Muffins

Saturdays are for indulgence. After the 9-5 weekly grind, early morning Saturday weigh-ins + workouts, indulgence in the spa, kitchen, bedroom… is welcome luxury.

Today, we indulged in these delicious slightly sweet CranApple Muffins.  Believe it or not, we still have my sister’s  homemade- cranberry-sauce . It still tastes as fresh and delicious as the first day, and we keep postponing its “finish” date.


These muffins are a modified version of the brown butter apple bread. The steps are almost the same, the result is a more tart and satisfying muffin.
