We just can’t get enough of cranberries this festive season!
Not only are they a great source of vitamin B-6, vitamin C, fiber and potassium, they add a bold festive color to food and have an unusually delicate balance of tart and sweet flavors.
The question has come up of where to find cranberries that are sugar-free. It’s a good question as it is a much harder task than it should be. Our secret is looking often at various stores and always reading the labels. The other all-time safe bet for sugar-free cranberries is Cherry Bay Orchards.
This Cranberry Almond Muffin recipe is one of my favorites. It is so easy to make and is both gluten-free and dairy-free.
Plus, these muffins freeze fantastically, so you can bake a batch and enjoy them all winter long…
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 shake salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon raw agave nectar

1/2 cup unsweetened cranberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Pulse the apricots in a food processor until finely chopped.
Add the coconut flour, coconut oil, salt, baking soda, eggs, honey/agave and vanilla extract and pulse until well combined.
Place the mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in the cranberries and almonds.
