I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today! Cranberry and orange is such a classic flavor combination and these muffins really bring out both flavors beautifully.

The tartness of the cranberries with the fresh orange juice and zest is just SO good!

This recipe was actually really easy to come up with too which is my favorite kind of recipe. All I had to do was modify the base recipe for my Apple Crumble Muffins slightly.

I added some orange zest, orange juice, and used cranberries instead of apples, that’s it!

If you aren’t a huge fan of cranberries but love orange muffins, you can just leave out the cranberries.

These muffins are also great because they are super easy to make and only take about 10 minutes to prepare.

So let’s talk about how you make them!

  • 2 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.

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.
