When Summer Turns Into Fall, Make these Muffins!

Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake when Summer turns into Fall.

There are so many reasons why I love them. First, the house smells warm and inviting when you’re making them. But they’re also the best for grabbing when you’re on the go!

Despite most muffins getting a bad rap for being high in calories (typically around 400 calories each or more), we wanted to change things up a bit. So, because we cut the amount of fat and sugar used in this recipe, these gluten-free muffins are chocked full of nutritious ingredients to cut the calories and fuel your day.

To make them, we use applesauce to replace part of the fat and dried cranberries to provide natural sweetness.

Then to add extra texture, and give the muffins a delicious little crunch we stirred in some walnuts to make them super satisfying.

Enjoy!

PRO-TIP:

Toasting the walnuts before adding them will enhance the nutty flavor and goodness of the muffins. And you can’t beat how they accentuate the natural flavor and fragrance in the muffins while they’re baking!

Gluten-Free Cranberry, Toasted Walnut & Oatmeal Muffins
Well worth the effort to make them, these great flavorful muffins will take you beyond hum-drum, moving you well on your way towards fulfilling your healthy eating plan. Enjoy!

INSTRUCTIONS
 

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF
  • Line a standard 12-muffin tin with paper baking cups or lightly spray each cup with cooking spray.
  • Combine oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, in a large bowl and whisk together. Add the brown sugar and stir to combine.
  • Using a separate bowl, add applesauce, milk, oil, and egg, blend to combine. Add to oat and flour mixture; stirring until the ingredients become moistened.
  • Stir in the cranberries and nuts.
  • Divide the batter equally between the muffin cups; a large ice-cream scoop works well to measure the batter for approximately 1/2 to 1/3 cup per scoop (+/-) for 12 muffins.
  • Sprinkle each batter-filled cup with a pinch or two of the remaining two tablespoons of oats and one or two pinchs of coconut palm sugar.
  • Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean. Cool muffins in the pan placed on a wire rack for 5 minutes; remove from the pan and serve warm.

Take a peek at the behind GfreeDeliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
