Yum! I think these are really good – makes 1 dozen largish muffins (inspiration is cranberry walnut bites from store).


  • zest of 3 medium oranges plus all the juices
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 tbsp softened coconut oil or butter
  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pam for spraying tin


  1. preheat your oven to 350F with the muffin tin in the oven to warm
  2. mix together first 6 ingredients in a bowl, then mix the rest of ingredients (minus the PAM spray for the tin) in another large mixing bowl
  3. blend the bowl of dry ingredients together with a spoon then pour the wet mixture into that bowl and blend everything together to make your batter
  4. remove the warm tin from the oven and spray it with PAM and then fill the tin with the batter (should make 12)
  5. bake for approx 20 minutes, checking after 15 with cake tester to see if batter if cooked through
  6. remove from tin and move to cooling rack until ready to pack in freezer bags or enjoy right now!
