With the cinnamon, nutmeg and cranberries… these muffins just smell and taste like Christmas!

 

They freeze well for up to a month, so make a double batch and keep them in the freezer. Take some out every night before you go to bed to have a delicious and nutritious, ready-made breakfast waiting for you (and your little ones) in the morning.

 

This recipe is taken from my book Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics.
