Fresh cranberry-orange muffins recipe

Yields 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 orange juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Add muffin liners to a 12-count muffin tin (we used silicone liners) and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking soda, salt and ginger. Add the butter to the mixture and use a pastry blender to incorporate the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the eggs and the milk together. In a separate bowl, add the orange zest to the orange juice.
  4. Add the milk mixture, and orange juice and zest to the dry mixture until combined. Fold in the cranberries.
  5. Use a spoon to add the batter to the muffin cups, almost to the top.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Allow the muffins to sit for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.
  8. Serve.

These muffins include a fragrant flavor combo!
