  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cups fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with baking cups or spray with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Place cranberries in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs, whisk in the oil, sugar, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix with a spoon, just until combined. Fold in chopped cranberries and chocolate chips. Mix just until combined.
  • Spray a 1/3 cup dry measure with cooking spray.  Scoop out a scant 1/3 cup of batter to fill each cup in your muffin pan.  You may need to spray the measuring cup with additional cooking spray if batter begins sticking.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 22 to 26 minutes or until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 5 or 10 minutes in pan. When cool enough to handle, remove from pan and cool completely.
  • Prepare the glaze. In a small bowl mix powdered sugar with vanilla. Add milk until you get the desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled muffins.
