Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins

These Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins are packed with flavour and make me feel so festive at this time of year! Alongside blood oranges, cranberries and oranges, or clementines, are nostalgic for me when the temperature drops, and pairing these flavours together is just a perfect harmony.

As a snack or as part of your breakfast, these muffins will surely wake up your taste buds. I love using oat flour in baked goods because I know I’m adding a bit of fibre and heart-supportive nutrients. Feel free to swap in your favourite citrus flavours if orange isn’t your favourite choice (lemon would also be really good here!)

To make these muffins, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Frozen cranberries
  • Oat flour
  • Ground flax
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking soda
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Orange zest
  • Maple syrup
  • Olive oil
