Cran Apple Oatmeal Muffins

Cran Apple Oatmeal Muffins Pin

On Saturday, I baked.

Four different kinds of muffins, a butternut squash, those chicken meatballs, some applesauce and PB2 granola. It only took a few hours, but I was able to fill the freezer up with nourishing, gluten-free treats and snacks  for the family.

Most of the muffin recipes I use are ones that I know pretty well or come from blogs that are consistently good. These cran apple oatmeal muffins started out as something completely different a few months ago from a blog I wasn’t familiar with. They sort of didn’t work for me, but I liked the general idea and made notes to come back to.

I’m so glad I finally did.

In this season of everything pumpkin, they’re a nice taste of fall without more orange stuff. I used my silicon muffin pan, oiled well with coconut oil and they slid right out with beautiful crusts, but I’m assuming they’d also work well with paper liners (let me know if you try them that way).
