    There’s nothing like waking to the smell of freshly baked muffins in the morning. You walk in the kitchen and feel the warmth of the oven. Pour some tea or brew a pot of fresh coffee. And you know you’re going to have a better day just because you’re kicking things off with something fresh and delicious.

    Or … you’ve worked hard all day and just finished a nice dinner. You pop on some light tunes and get to baking – maybe while sipping a glass of wine. That same warmth seeps into your kitchen, and you know tonight’s dessert will satisfy.

    Those are the feelings I get when I bake these delicious Cranberry-Orange Muffins.

    But, even better than the coziness of a warm kitchen, is the knowledge that these particular treats are so so good for you.

    Now, most dried cranberries are sweetened with sugar or corn syrup – so you’ve got to be careful when doing your shopping, and avoid sugary brands at all costs. But, it’s not too hard to find better options. In fact, you can find freeze-dried, unsweetened cranberries at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, or even online at Amazon or Thrive Market.

    Also, the tangy, tasty orange zest in this recipe adds the perfect pop of flavor. To make the orange zest, use a micro-plane grater (or the nest side of a four-sided grater). And make sure to be careful to avoid the bitter white pith beneath the skin.

    So, are you ready to tantalize your taste buds with these super-easy to make, delicious, lectin-free …

    What to do –

    1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard 6-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
    2. Place the coconut flour, salt, and baking soda in a food processor fitted with an S-blade. Add the coconut oil, Just Like Sugar, eggs, and orange zest. Pulse until blended. Remove the processor blade and stir in the cranberries by hand.
