Cranberries make these muffins abit tart; sliced almonds add some crunchand heart-healthy unsaturated fat.
Hazelnut-Pear Variation: For another sweet (and seasonal) union, replace the almond flour with hazelnut flour. Omit cranberries. Fold in 2 cups peeled, cored, and chopped pears (from 1 1/2 Bosc pears) at the end of step 2. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts in place of sliced almonds.
