Paleo Orange Cranberry Muffins ( GF, Grain-free )

‘Tis the month for holiday baking and my kitchen has been getting A LOT of use lately. I’ve got several recipes that I am very excited to share, starting with these Paleo Orange Cranberry Muffins.

These muffins are moist, delicious, and bursting with fresh orange and cranberry flavors! They are also gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and Paleo. Holiday baking for the win!

I’m not sure why, but orange-cranberry / cranberry-orange baked goods remind me of the holidays.

It could be because the holidays are when cranberries are in season. And so the flavor of the orange-cranberry combo can really only happen during this time of year.

How to make these Cranberry Orange Paleo Muffins:

In one bowl, mix together almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Then add fresh cranberries to the bowl and mix them in.

In another bowl, mix the eggs, maple syrup, fresh squeezed orange juice, extra light olive oil, and orange zest together.

Then combine the ingredients from both the wet and dry ingredient bowls and put the batter into muffin tins.

Even the batter smells good!

Then bake the muffins for about 16 minutes and boom, these Paleo Orange Cranberry Muffins will be ready.

Yes, these cook in 16 minutes!

These muffins cook at a slightly higher oven temperature than usual muffins do, so this means that the muffins don’t have to cook as long.

Delicious paleo muffins in a jiffy… um, yes please!

The muffins still cook long enough for the cranberries to burst and for the cranberry juices to seep through all of the muffins.

This is my favorite part… the way the cranberries pop and the sour cranberry juice spreads throughout the muffins. NOM.

I just wish cranberries were in season all year long, but I’ll take advantage of it while it is here.

The sourness of the cranberries compliment the sweet and bitter flavors of the orange juice and zest… it just all comes together so well.

And when the muffins are still warm, it’s game over! It was realllllly hard for me to eat just one, but I needed to take these photos first.

Hope you enjoy these during cranberry season as much as I do!
