Mashed potatoes, cranberries & almond muffins

I was thinking about all the holiday leftovers this year, and I thought to myself, why not make some muffins with mashed potatoes instead of flour? Add a bit of cranberries, and it’s a revolution!

On a side note to that brilliance, if you packed your mashers with garlic, you might want to skip this one. There can be salt in the potatoes, but they have to be neutral for best results.
