I created this muffin recipe mainly because my 6 year old daughter wanted me to by craisins (dried cranberries) and then I decided to mix it up with the type of muffin I made for the week. Because my girls and I apparently can’t go a week without making muffins lately. They’re so easy to make, the perfect size for little ones to eat for a snack, not that messy, and freeze very well!
Muffins are one of the best snacks out there! (Especially when you sub out eggs for flax eggs, and oil for applesauce- honestly, my girls and I couldn’t even tell the difference!)
Let’s Make These Easy Cranberry Apple Muffins
Now, I don’t like making more dirty dishes than need washing than absolutely necessary (I haven’t had a dishwasher in my home for almost 3 years…). So, you’ll simply need one large bowl (and one small to make the flax egg), a spoon, and measuring cups and spoons to make the batter.
Start with preheating the oven to 350ºF and setting out your silicone muffins cups, or lining your muffin tin.
Then you’ll want to prepare the flax egg for the recipe by mixing together 1 tablespoon flaxmeal and about 3 tablespoons water. Flaxmeal is simply ground up flaxseeds; you can buy it already ground up or use a coffee grinder, food processor, nutribullet to grind it up.
Now would also be a good time to grind up oats into oat flour if you don’t buy oat flour already prepared or don’t have any home made oat flour ready to be used. Grind it the same way you did for the flaxmeal.
Once you’re done with any prep work needed, add and mix all of the dry ingredients together (besides the apple and cranberries).
Then add in all of the wet ingredients and mix well.
Add in the cranberries and chopped apples, mix well and then divide the batter into the baking cups. Fill the baking cups about two thirds of the way up.
Once you’re done dividing up the batter, place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until slightly golden on top!
Feel free to add a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon to the top of the muffins if you want them to be slightly sweeter!
