Orange Cranberry Yogurt Muffins

Just the mention of muffins sends my mini chefs yelping and cheering for joy. I am not a huge muffin fan, but I do enjoy when they come out of the oven super warm, with chunks of fruit and I can slather some jam or nut butter across the top. The cranberries and oranges in this recipe have a nice amount Vitamin C which keeps our skin looking young and healthy, and also helps us recover faster when we are sick and heals cuts and scrapes (I hear you boo boo' and ouchies).
