  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Fold in the chopped walnuts and dried cranberries.
  7. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about three-quarters full.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  9. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for 5 minutes.
  10. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
