Happy Tuesday, my darlings! I am recovering from quite a long week and weekend, but no worries! Our dear friend Julia from The Roasted Root is here to save the day. She knew I was crunched on time and sanity, and so she made these b-e-a-utiful Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Muffins to share with us today. Don’t we just love her??

Well hello again, Eat Your Heart Out-ians!  I’m happy to be joining you again on Stephie’s site, and I’m bringing gluten-free cranberry orange muffins to share. In a pretty basket. I may or may not be wearing plaid. Look out, Bree Van de Kamp, there’s competition in the house!

Stephie and I love a good tasty treat. And sweet potatoes. We love dessert and sweet potatoes. And things that are sweet. It was out of this love that I decided to bake up a batch of muffins for my guest appearance here.

This is the story about how 9 muffins disappeared in less than 12 hours. It’s a short story. You’re looking at addiction in muffin-form.

Cranberry orange muffins have been my favorite since I was a wee tyke. The combination of flavors has always just worked for me, which means eating in bulk is bound to happen. Substituting nutrition into the muffin yields the ultimate excuse to continue volume eating muffin after muffin. Made using coconut milk instead of oil or dairy, almond meal and brown rice flour in place of all-purpose flour, and pure maple syrup to keep it naturally sweet, this recipe is actually quite healthful for you.

So whether you’re raising the roof in the gluten-averse house or simply looking for a delicious yet nutritious approach to a timeless classic, you’ll love this recipe and its disappearing act. Until next time, my friends: eat your heart out!

I knew I was saving those two flours for something. I'm making these this weekend (out of coconut milk, or I'd make them sooner). Probably have to thrown in some pecans, too, just because....

YES on the pecans! Yes, yes, yes! I thought about adding walnuts but completely forgot. Hope you like them!
