Cranberry Muffins – Two Ways

Cranberry Muffins – Two Ways

So I haven’t really succeeded in the fall foods department this year. No pumpkin recipes and only a couple failed squash attempts for dinner. I didn’t even make cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving.

BUT I did succeed in making these delicious cranberry muffins before Fall has technically ended (I think?). I made two batches two different ways. Both were equally amazing!

My first batch was CranApple Walnut Muffins. Cranberry, applesauce, and walnuts. The name itself sounds like a delicious mouthful.

The second batch was Cranberry Orange…I’m not quite sure which batch was better than the other. They are both scrumptious in their own right!

I used my crockpot applesauce recipe for both of these muffins. You could really taste the cinnamon and apple flavor in the Cranapple Walnut version. The apple was masked with the orange flavored stevia, but there was still a hint of cinnamon that paired great with the other flavors.

Cranberry Muffins – Two Ways




Yield 12

This delicious cranberry muffin recipe can be made two ways – by adding walnuts or adding NuNaturals orange flavored liquid stevia. Or – you can get crazy and add both!


  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sweetener (I used NuNaturals Presweet tagatose)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 cup plain Chobani greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup crockpot applesauce (link to recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1.5 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2/3 cup walnuts or 3 droppers of NuNaturals Orange Liquid Stevia


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder together in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix sweetener (also orange stevia if desired), egg, Greek yogurt, and applesauce.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, along with almond milk.
  5. Once completely mixed, fold in cranberries and walnuts if desired.
  6. Pour batter into a greased muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
