White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Muffins

[sociallinkz]

What could be more perfect for breakfast than Muffins?! This delicious White Chocolate & Cranberry combo was prepared with Oat & Brown Rice Flour, than topped with Mini White Chocolate Chips and Dried Cranberries. After a few adjustments of an older recipe, it would be fair to say that this was the best batch I have ever baked. Although muffins are great for breakfast, they also make a great snack and a wholesome school-lunch option for your kiddoes.
