This recipe has all the heart eyes from me! These cranberry orange oatmeal muffins are a simple, healthy treat so many reasons. Scroll down to find the recipe and remember to pin it to make again!
Traditional all-purpose flour is highly processed and empty calories, so subbing oatmeal in place of flour is a great way to make these richer in fiber. Bonus points if you’re a breastfeeding mama, oats are a natural milk booster! We also use this gluten-free flour in baking sometimes too. It’s nice because it’s a 1:1 ratio swap in ANY recipe that calls for all purpose flour.
Can I make these ahead of time and freeze them?
YES! Muffins are perfect for making ahead of time and freezing in big batches. Especially if you’re a fan of grab and go breakfasts, or have a nursing newborn and need food you can eat with one hand 😉
I recommend individually wrapping each muffin in parchment paper and aluminum foil, then storing in an airtight container or gallon ziplock bag in the freezer.
These will stay fresh for three months if you store them correctly! Bake once, eat for a long time.
Are you a breastfeeding mama?
Just add 1/4 cup brewer’s yeast to the dry ingredients to turn these into lactation muffins.
