Cranberries are the seasonal fruit that are year round in my life. I love love love cranberries, so much that I hoard them and put them in the freezer so they will be ready for me anytime I want these cranberry zucchini muffins, cranberry soda, or apple cranberry pecan crumble.cranberry zucchini muffins

My kids are not crazy about zucchini but when put into muffin form, they disappear quickly! I added in some cranberries to make this a healthier holiday breakfast or treat! Make a batch ahead of time and serve them on those busy mornings…like Christmas! They keep for a few days on the counter or you can even store them in the fridge or freezer.

I love the tart flavor of the cranberries! You can’t taste the zucchini at all, but they definitely make a very pretty muffin with lots of color!
