Grain Free, Nut Free Cranberry Apple Breakfast Muffins

Tart cranberries and sweet apples pair well together in this moist breakfast muffin. We love healthy, homemade muffins around here because they are a simple breakfast that fills us up especially because of the good fats and fiber that’s in them.

When we’re running late trying to get somewhere in the morning, muffins are a quick fix that satisfies. I like to make them the night before while I make dinner. Yep, multi-tasking is a must for a mom whose desire is to feed her family wholesome food. What I love is that I get to wake up the next morning and know that I don’t have to make breakfast! For those of us that don’t feel good in the mornings or just have a lot going on, this breakfast is a winner. You can serve it with a cup of bone broth and really get your day started right!

Let’s Talk About Important Ingredients

Use organic eggs when possible. Pastured are even better. You won’t be getting GMO’s, pesticides, or soy and you will be getting healthy eggs from healthy chickens.

I love to get my palm shortening in bulk here because it’s tested to be free of Glyphosate.

This is my favorite coconut flour. When it’s not available at my local Costco, I buy it here.

This is the best Apple Cider Vinegar because it has the mother which means that all the fermentation goodness keeps happening while it sits on the shelf.

Be sure to buy your apples and apple juice organically since they are on the EWG’s dirty dozen list which means they are sprayed with a lot of herbicides and pesticides which don’t go away when the apple is washed.

For the cranberries, I always stock up on organic ones during the fall. They last me throughout the year. Every time I go to the store I pick myself up a bag. When I get home, I wash them and then freeze them on a sheet pan and then place them in a container to store in the freezer. I  use them year round in baked goods and smoothies.

For things like arrowroot flour, baking soda, cardamom and cinnamon, I love to use Thrive Market. Their prices are some of the most inexpensive and they make it easy to source hard to find foods. I really love that everything gets shipped directly to my door, saving me the shopping trip and that I get free shipping!

If you don’t have cardamom and cinnamon on hand you can substitute these spices by using our favorite essential oils. We LOVE cooking with them!

The Best Tools for Making Muffins

I cannot tell you enough how much I love these muffin tin liners. I wish I could shout it from the rooftops! They have made clean up a breeze because they are truly non-stick. I love that I don’t have to replace them like the paper ones and I love that they come in pretty, bright colors.

These are my favorite muffin tins because they make 12 muffins at a time.

Using my favorite muffin scoop makes filling the liners really simple.
