Sunburn Mourning Muffins

One morning this summer me and my cousin woke up to find ourselves with rather unfortunate sunburns, and to make it worse we had to make breakfast.  These muffins were the product of that morning.  It bursts with red bits of cranberry and cherry and other berries, as well as other unique flavors that combine to form this delicious muffin.  It is the perfect pick me up after a bad sunburn, but seeing as its winter, it’s a nice warming breakfast.
