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!

Is there an alternative to Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules? I can't get it here, and I can see it's a blend of honey and cane sugar.

Can this be made in a loaf pan as a bread. If so what size pan and how long to bake. Sounds so good.

Hi Sharon (name twins!), I've never made this in a loaf pan BUT you could try it in a 9x5 inch pan and start checking it for doneness after 40 min.

Looks delicious! I love the orange cranberry combo. And those honey granules sound amazing. I LOVE the flavor of honey in my baked goods.

Quick question. I've been toying with the idea of omitting xanthan gum in my baking. I noticed these don't call for any xanthan gum. How is the texture???

Thanks Brielle! The texture on these are good, they hold together really well. I used almond meal in these and I find that baking grain free, I don't need the xanthan gum. If I use rice flour blends, they definitely need the xanthan gum HOWEVER I've been experimenting with a blend using arrowroot that doesn't require much xanthan gum. I'll be posting that flour this month :)
