Cranberry-Pecan Jumbo Muffins

I love the ease of these muffins. Make up a few mixes ahead of time, and you can have them on your brunch table in 35 minutes. How’s that for making breakfast easy??

These are jumbo muffins because they’re absolutely scrumptious that way. Feel free to try the variation to make standard-size ones below…or simply slice a jumbo muffin in half and share it with the one you love. 😉
