This super easy recipe starts with one of those less than a $1 mixes. I used Martha White, added a few extra ingredients and wha la "Gourmet Muffins".

I found this recipe online and did some tweaking to my liking. It's a great muffin to have on hand for those busy mornings when you just don't have time for breakfast. Just grab a muffin, a cup of coffee and run!

Hope you enjoy!

CRANBERRY MUFFINS: I used Martha White's Blueberry Cheese Cake muffin mix and 1/2 of a 6-oz bag of frozen cranberries. Topped with a mixture of sugar and fresh grated lemon peel. NOTE: cranberries are tart and these muffins were tart. You would have to be a true cranberry lover to enjoy the tartness.

CRUMB TOPPING:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon oatmeal
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Make the crumb topping by using a fork to combine the flour, brown sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle each muffin with one tablespoon of the crumb topping
