One of my all time favorite ingredients this time of year is tiny tart cranberries. One of my favorite foods for breakfast, brunch and snacks is homemade cornbread. Combining them both into a fiber filled muffin is perfection!

These little muffins are the perfect blend of fall/winter flavors. Serve them to your kids before school & also to your Thanksgiving & Christmas guests. They will be glad you did!

I’ve teamed up with Benefiber® to host a brunch to test out a few recipes on my family & friends.

Adding just a small amount of their easy to use fiber powder to my cooking helps supplement our daily whole food diet.

We have used this powder on & off for years. In oatmeal, shakes, smoothies, breakfast cakes & these muffins.

You can learn more about the benefits of fiber here.

The great thing is this fiber powder dissolves easily and is tasteless. Another cool thing is how well it bakes into cakes & muffins. The crumb is still perfect!

Cranberry Cornbread Muffins – Gluten Free

Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons Milk (I used fat free milk)

  • 2 large Eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Gluten Free Oat Flour
  • 1/2 cup fine ground Corn Meal

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1 cup dried Cranberries (toss with 1 tablespoon oat flour)

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Spray a muffin pan(s) with cooking spray or line with muffins liners.
  • In a large bowl combine milk, apple sauce, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla. Once well combined stir in flours, baking powder, salt and Benefiber®. Fold in dried cranberries. Divide batter among muffin cups and bake for 18-20 minutes, until a wooden skewer comes out virtually crumb free.

We might top these with a little more maple syrup, but that is okay, right? ;)

Looks like they were a big hit with the kids. I would have one or maybe two if I was there.

They were pretty small – two would be fine!

Beautiful cranberry cornbread muffins, Marla! I love that they are gluten free and that you used pure maple syrup to sweeten the batter. Thank you for sharing!

Marla, I’m loving all the gluten-free recipes you’re sharing – and this one is no exception. Looks delicious!

These look great! What can I use instead of the almond flour? We have nut allergies? Thanks!

18 Marla November 12, 2013 at 7:04 am

Try more fine cornmeal or oat flour. I did not test without the almond flour though. Let us know how it turns out if you try :)

What if we don’t have the benefiber powder? Can I substitute something for it or omit it?

Reply

20 Marla November 11, 2013 at 8:16 pm

Great question! I did not try baking them without the fiber powder – but if I did I would simply omit it. Please let me know if you try. These ingredient ratios are ones I typically use. Without the powder.

Cornbread is my weakness, especially in cute, individual servings like this!
