Gluten Free Cranberry Muffins

,

My Gluten Free Cranberry muffins are the dream. Cranberry and orange are such seasonal flavours so these are perfect to serve up with a cup of spiced tea.

I have recently been craving cake so much, and these are the perfect refined sugar free alternative to your usual sugar filled cupcakes! Coconut sugar actually contains skin glowing zinc and gut loving inulin so it has more benefits that just a natural sweetener!

If you like these I know you’re going to love my Strawberry and Almond Paleo Muffins, they are to die for!

Share your recreations with me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #madeleineshaw #gettheglow I love seeing them!


Serves 12 Ready in 45 minutes Good For ,

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 c
Place the sugar and coconut oil/butter in a food processor and cream together. Once fluffy and light, add in the eggs and process together.

In a separate bowl, mix the ground almonds, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and cinnamon together.

Zest the orange and mix together with the vanilla extract. Pour the orange and vanilla mixture over the dry almond mix and stir well, throw in the cranberries and stir again.
Pour into large muffin paper moulds and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Leave to cool then dig in. I’ve decorated mine here with some extra cranberries and desiccated coconut.
They will last 2-3 days In a airtight container in the cupboard

    Hi Madeleine, this looks absolutely delicious! What would you recommend to use instead of eggs (I am allergic to them). Chia or flaxseed with water?
    Thanks for that!

      I’ve not tried it so not sure, but I think either would be fine. Have a go and let me know how you get on? x

    Many people will find they can’t have milk and other dairy products but that they can have butter. If butter works better for you I would go for that – it still has a higher smoking point like coconut oil. Let me know how you get on and if changing diet is helping x
