Isn’t Christmas time the best time of the year? I mean, it is such a cheerful and fun time, all you basically need is to show up and have fun. But before we know the new year is here, and that brings an entirely different dynamic to our lives. We settle back into our busy lives, and try to fit a few goals in.
These Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins are the perfect complement to both scenarios; it is both fun and festive for the holiday celebrations and a deliciously healthy breakfast to get your through the busy mornings.
Truth is most American families wake up and are out the door, myself included. It makes the world of a difference when I have something ready to grab-and-go, like these Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins.
Could you use some of these in your busy household? Then let me tell you more…
I love making muffins and have shared quite a few muffin recipes on blog. That’s not by accident or lack or inspiration. Oh no-no-no! I just love having these tasty muffins in hand for a quick and easy breakfast on the go, for school lunches, a tasty afternoon snack while we brainstorm on math problems, or between sports and activities.
During the holidays, they are a hit too! So bright and festive, full of holiday cheer.
About these muffins
Besides a meal solution, these muffins are actually super healthy too! Made with rolled oats, Decas™️ Farm fresh cranberries, apple sauce (or greek yogurt if dairy is not a problem), orange juice and no refined sugar. Basically your fruit serving, protein and fiber (oats) and even your morning o.j. in one place.
But that’s not all. These Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins are entirely made in a blender!!!
That’s right. No bowls, spatulas, flour dusty counters to clean, just throw everything a blender and done!
Cooking with Cranberries
I am a huge fan of cooking with Decas™️ Farm cranberries, not only around the holidays but all year round. They are packed with health benefits, delicious and they come from nature, not the lab. Decas™️ Farm use only all natural ingredients. No additives, colors, or preservatives. No sulfites. No artificial anything. Only the good stuff. Just like nature intended.
For other recipe ideas using cranberries you can try these delicious Cranberry Orange Cookies that you can use both fresh cranberries or baking cranberries or this AMAZING Skillet Cranberry Chicken and Veggies!
You will love making these easy and healthy blender muffins. The important thing is to not wake up another morning without a muffin in hand 🙂
Gluten-Free and Flourless Cranberry Orange Oat Muffins!
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats, divided
- 1 cup Decas Farm Cranberries
- 1 cup apple sauce
- 2 large cage-free eggs
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees. Line a muffin pan with silicone or paper cups. Set aside
Place all the ingredients in a blender cup except the cranberries. Use 2 cups of rolled oats and set the remaining 1/2 cup aside. Blend for about 30-40 seconds to combine. I used a Vitamix, other blender times may very.
Add in fresh cranberries and remaining oats and stir into the mixture with a spatula. This will give muffins a delicious texture and the cranberries will naturally burst.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Test muffins with a fork after 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to cool down before eating.
