Cranberry Applesauce Muffins are great for a brunch or an easy on the go breakfast! The best part of these muffins is they’ll make your house smell absolutely delicious!

I am feverishly emptying out my refrigerator for my 7 week trip to the USA. I have jars of  jam, applesauce, pickles, Artichoke Hearts and a bunch of other things that are taking up several shelves in the fridge. Clearing out pantries and fridges are an expat ritual that most expats will do between mid May and early June.

Electricity goes out.

Ants come marching in.

Humidity is out of control.

It creates an environment for disaster for when we return in August. No one wants to throw away cereal filled with ants (cereal isn’t cheap here!) or moth infested bags of pecans. No one. So the great kitchen emptying takes place.

On the agenda today? Finish up that jar of homemade cinnamon applesauce! I went to Disney with my cousin Carla who is here from Lebanon. I figured a batch of Cranberry Applesauce Muffins would be an easy snack to munch on in the morning on the way to the metro.

To be honest I am double excited! I finished up the jar of applesauce and half of my bag of Cranberries AND I am going to Disney! How lucky am I lol?!

We went on Tron and Pirates of the Caribbean! They were both totally amazing! Here’s me and Carla on Tron!

And then the morning came, and in the rush of getting ready we forgot our Cranberry Applesauce Muffins!!
