Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful day surrounded by family and friends. Today is a day to enjoy a great meal and share what you are all thankful for. We had a nice time at my brother in laws house with a table set for 12. Our arrival was at 2:00 so that gave us the opportunity for a lazy morning just our little family, the Macy’s day parade, a batch of these Cranberry Orange Muffins, and a cup of tea.
These muffins are put together in no time and are delicious! You should save these for a great addition to your Christmas morning breakfast too! Gather the following:
- 1 cup flour (we use GF flour blend)
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- zest from one orange
- 1/4 cup oil
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Add the cup of fresh cranberries and stir
In the bowl of your mixer add all of the wet ingredients and combine
Add the dry to the wet all at once and mix, it’s a good thing when the cranberries start to burst in the mixer.
At this point you have a choice to make this into a loaf or muffins. I chose to do mini muffins because, well, they’re just fun!
Bake them at 400 degrees until they start to brown slightly, baking times will vary depending on muffins vs. bread.
So simple and refreshing, a great breakfast treat to make your holidays special. On that note, I’m going to go curl up in front of the fire with my family for which I am most thankful for today and every day. Goodnight Springdell family!
