Boozy Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Muffins

These muffins are the very definition of boozy, and include a perfect flavor combination.  At first, these little morsels were going to be a fun traveling snack.  Instead, it may be a better snack to enjoy in the comfort of your home.  The tart flavors of cranberry mix with the orange liquor, and gluten-free flours perfectly.  Let’s safely enjoy a few Boozy Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Muffins!

Since I can only enjoy whole wheat or gluten-free flours, this year I plan to explore gluten-free baking more. You will find some gluten-free recipes I have shared over the years.  I enjoy the challenge of baking with all the different flours.

This recipe uses fresh cranberries, but you could easily soak dried cranberries in the orange liquor to plump them up. I actually stocked my freezer over the holidays with fresh cranberries. Now I can enjoy them longer than three months!

The inspiration for this recipe was from a cookbook I will be reviewing for you.  I had to change around the recipe to make it boozy, and due to the ingredients I had available.  Look forward to a five star review for the book, The Complete Coconut Cookbook by Camilla V. Saulsbury.

Mix wet and dry ingredients together and whisk together, then fold in cranberries.
