    Cranberry Orange Muffins (Gluten Free) Cranberry Orange Muffins (Gluten Free) And let me tell you my secret for this easy gluten free muffin recipe. I made these delicious and gluten free Cranberry Orange Muffins with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.  It is perfectly formulated for baked goods with terrific taste and texture – no additional specialty ingredients or custom recipes required. This flour combines finely ground brown rice flour, sweet white rice flour, whole grain sorghum flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour with a touch of xanthan gum—just enough xanthan gum to create chewy cookies and springy muffins. The protein in the sorghum flour helps give baked goods an almost wheat-like texture and aids in browning, for those times you need a perfectly golden brown chocolate chip cookie. You can use this blend also for cookies, cakes, and brownies. If you are going grocery shopping right now… don’t forget to grab a coupon for Bob’s Red Mill! Cranberry Orange Muffins (Gluten Free) These make for a great make-ahead breakfast, by the way. They stay fresh at room temperature for a few days and stay nice even once refrigerated.  You can bake these cranberry orange muffins a day ahead, and once they’ve cooled, store in an airtight container. Freeze any leftovers in heavy-duty zip-lock plastic bags. Cranberry Orange Muffins (Gluten Free)What you need

    Cranberry and orange is one of my favorite flavor combos. These look perfect!

    When I started baking gluten-free, Bob’s Red Mill’s gluten-free blend was something I always had in the kitchen. I’ve gained so much confidence in baking from using it. Cranberry and orange sounds like a great combination. 🙂
