Moist and full of apples and real cranberries, these grain-free muffins are a healthy start to the day or snack.

Grain free apple cranberry muffins

Apples and cranberries are one of my favorite fall combinations. I know everyone is always stuck on pumpkin but there's something even better about the tart cranberry taste combined with a crisp and sweet apple that beats out pumpkin any day in my book. These muffins combine both flavors in a grain-free treat you can have for breakfast or as a snack. They're a protein-packed bite from the nut flours and a healthy way to enjoy the seasonal flavors.
