These muffins scream fall.
Cranberries are the most underrated fall fruit in my opinion. I know we all miss summer berries (currently having withdrawals), but just think of all the cranberry creations we can make! I love them because not only do they add a good tang, but they also provide an antioxidant boost. I eat them frozen as a snack, in oatmeal with almond butter (duh), or just out of the bag. I seem to crave them every year around this time, which explains the recipe.
For this recipe, I used One Degree Organic Foods flour, and I can see a difference in the muffin quality. One Degree Organic uses only natural ingredients for their baking goods, as well as local farms for the growth. I love the message their company stands by, and cannot recommend them enough.
I’ve said this before, but I am not much of a chocolate person. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always been a vanilla > chocolate gal. However, this recipe might turn me into a chocolate lover. I used cacao chips, which I’ve recently discovered. Am I the only person who prefers bitter cacao (no, just me?) No clue what it is- I love them though!
INGREDIENTS (Makes 12 muffins):
1 cup One Degree Organic Foods flour (or flour of choice)
1 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp stevia
1 cup cranberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp baking powder
1.) Pre-heat your oven to 350 F.
2.) In a large mixing bowl, combine your flour, oats, stevia & brown sugar, cranberries, making powder, and chocolate chips. Mix them together so there are no clumps of anything.
3.) Add the remaining ingredients, and stir stir stir. Add more liquid if need be. You should get a muffin-like consistency.
4.) Spray a muffin tin with non stick spray and begin to add the batter. Add about one large spoonful to start off, and once every tin is filled up, add the remaining batter so that each muffin tin has about the same amount of batter. Flatten them out with the back of your spoon.
5.) Stick them in the oven for 30 minutes. Once done, let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
