I love making muffins to have on hand for Max to grab in the morning; I don't always have a batch ready to go, but I try. These Chocolate Cranberry Muffins are perfect, because he thinks he's getting away with something because they look like chocolate cake, but I know he's getting at least a little protein and fiber in the morning, thanks to the oatmeal in this recipe.

You could totally substitute fresh cranberries for this recipe, if you're lucky enough to have access to them!
