Making this recipe using a mini muffin tin adds a bit of excitement to your breakfast routine. In case you only have a regular sized pan, that’s okay too. Both will make about 9 servings.

What we love about this recipe is how easy it is to toss the ingredients into your blender then simply filling the pans before baking. A bonus is that these mini muffins are GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE.

Cranberry recipes pop up a lot during the holidays when fresh cranberries are in season. Dried cranberries are a great option for when you cannot find the fresh ones. It’s best to reconstitute them in a little orange juice before adding them to the batter.

KITCHEN HACK ALERT: Use a resealable plastic bag with the corner cut off (like a pastry bag) to fill your muffin tin. This saves you a headache later when you would normally have to scrub off burnt muffin bits.

Pro Tips

  1. *If fresh cranberries are out of season, use dried cranberries. These are best when warmed with 2-3 TBSP of orange juice prior to adding them to the muffin batter. It will soften and make the dried fruit more juicy.

  2. Zest orange peel and add to the batter for a stronger orange taste.

  3. Toss in a handful of your favorite nuts; we recommend chopped pecans.

  4. To make filling your muffin pan a breeze, add batter to a resealable plastic bag. Cut the corner off and use it like a pastry bag.

  5. Makes 9 regular muffins or 36 mini muffins.
