Back to the Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins…
The batter comes together in no time.
Then you add in cranberries!
And since the cranberries get mixed in throughout the batter, I like to add extra cranberries on top before baking.
Can’t have too many cranberries!
Then bakes for 35 minutes.
Bonus… the house smells amazing when you bake these muffins!
Once out of the oven follow this Pro Tip: Let cool in the muffin tins for about 10 minutes then remove and let cool on a cooking rack.
The only downside is that someone might come by and grab a few!
These muffins are so yummy!
Bonus: The recipe doubles well and muffins freeze well.
Hope you love them as much as we do!

Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian
Serves: 12 muffins
⅓ cup butter or dairyfree alternative (we have baked these with Earth Balance soy free sticks)
1 cup sugar
½ 15 oz can pure pumpkin (which equals ½ cup + ⅓ cup canned pure pumpkin)
1 cup fresh cranberries (whole or chopped -- we prefer whole) + extra for topping
⅓ cup chopped walnuts (optional but we always add them)
Preheat oven to 350 and line 12 muffin tins with baking cups.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Stir in eggs, pumpkin and water.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves with a pastry cutter or fork.
Add dry ingredients to wet & mix well.
Stir in nuts.
Stir in cranberries
Pour into muffin tins. Top with additional cranberries if desired.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. TIP: check muffins at 30 minutes and lightly cover with foil if you feel the tops are cooking too much. If you cover with foil, leave in an extra 10 minutes to make sure center cooks well.
Let cool 10 mins. Remove from muffin tins and continue to cool on baking rack.
