Grain Free Cranberry Muffins

Growing up my Mom made muffins from scratch frequently. I would wake up to the sweet smell of baking and run downstairs to find out which flavor she made that day. Of course, back then I wasn’t worried about my weight and how much sugar was in my breakfast. I just enjoyed eating hot, sweet muffins for breakfast.

Today I still love muffins but I can do without all the sugar and calories. Healthy muffins are actually easy to make and are a great addition to meals and snacks throughout the day. I have several recipes on my website and they are all delicious and part of a clean eating plan. Make them in advance and freeze for quick grabs anytime of day.  Check out my Grain Free Pumpkin Muffins and Grain Free Banana Muffins – two of my clients favorites.

Tis the season for cranberries. We only see these tart little berries for a few months a year so enjoy them while you can find them fresh – usually October until early January. I like to grab a few extra bags and throw them in the freezer to enjoy later in the year.

Cranberries are not only low in calories but are packed with good nutrition and high in fiber. Cranberries are a good source of vitamin C, B vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, B6 and niacin as well as vitamin E. An entire cup has only 46 calories with 7 net carbs. Check out my Cranberry Sauce blog to see just how easy it is to make real, low calorie cranberry sauce and never miss the canned stuff again.
