Description

These Cranberry Orange muffins are delicious and have a wonderful soft texture. They are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and so easy to make!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (167g) all purpose gluten free flour (I use “Better Batter“)
  • 1 cup (116g) gluten free oat flour (or sorghum flour)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (omit if your gluten free flour already contains xanthan gum)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk of choice (I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk”)
  • Zest of 2 oranges 
  • 2 tbsp fresh orange juice 
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (refined melted coconut oil will work as well)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)

Icing Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar or substitute (I use “Swerve” powdered sweetener)
  • 23 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together gluten free all-purpose flour, gluten free oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and xanthan gum (if your flour doesn’t contain it).
  3. Add the remaining muffin ingredients except for the cranberries to the bowl and stir until combined.
  4. Fold the cranberries into the batter and fill each muffin tin about 3/4 of the way full.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Allow the muffins to cool completely before eating.

Notes

For the best results, I recommend weighing your flour for this recipe.  This is the inexpensive scale I use. Not everyone measures flour the same and in gluten free baking the amount flour can change the texture of the baked goods.
