These Grain Free Cranberry Orange Muffins are a great grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings. They’re full of citrus flavor, and tart cranberries- the perfect winter wake-up!
I don’t know about you, but I feel like every day in December is such a rush and goes by in a blur. There’s the shopping, the baking, the parties, the decorating, the wrapping, etc. It’s a jam packed month.
Since you’re most likely on Christmas cookie overload, these Grain Free Cranberry Orange Muffins are a great way to start your day on a healthier note. Not only are these muffins gluten free, they’re also grain free and sweetened with Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules.
I’ve used their granules before, in my Honey Banana Coffee Cake, and I really enjoy baking with them. I love the ease of being able to scoop and measure the granules without making a sticky mess. Because one less is a small victory, am I right!?
There are quite a few uses for Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules. You can bake with them and they’re also great in drinks, both hot and cold.
I use the Honey Granules most often when baking though. I sub the granules 1-for-1 with regular sugar PLUS an extra ¼ cup of liquid. FYI: Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules are sold exclusively at Walmart and you can find them here.
I love using cranberries this time of year. Since they’re still in season right now, they’re readily available. To me, cranberry is a quintessential holiday flavor. The cranberry, orange, and honey flavors all pair so well together. This is definitely a breakfast that you can feel good about during this month of holiday treats.
PS- If you’re craving another flavor of muffin that doesn’t involve cranberries, try these Blackberry Oat Muffins from Alisa at Go Dairy Free. They are dairy-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free and vegetarian. Enjoy!
