Orange, Almond & Cranberry Muffins (Recipe)
I love this combination of the citrusy flavor from the oranges, the sweetness from the almonds and the tartness from the cranberries. When you buy cranberries be sure to read the label as more often than not they can contain added sugars, preservatives and/ or refined oils, which I recommended to avoid. Cranberries are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, and are a great source of vitamin C, E, K, and fibre. You can make these muffins for breakfast, a snack, brunch or even dessert.
