Fresh cranberry-orange muffins recipe
- 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
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Add muffin liners to a 12-count muffin tin (we used silicone liners) and set aside.
- 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.
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs and the milk together. In a separate bowl, add the orange zest to the orange juice.
- Add the milk mixture, and orange juice and zest to the dry mixture until combined. Fold in the cranberries.
- Use a spoon to add the batter to the muffin cups, almost to the top.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
- Allow the muffins to sit for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.
