Most Sunday afternoons during the fall and winter you will find me in my kitchen making
a big pot of soup, followed by some type of muffin or corn bread. Sometimes I stick to our
favorites like vegetable pastachicken noodle or lentil soup and other times I try new
recipes that I've pinned or found in one of my many cookbooks.  My muffin Pinterest board
has close to 300 recipes that have sparked my interest, so I have plenty of new recipes to
try!



Quality ingredients are key when cooking and baking for my family. When I was younger
I never understood the importance of sourcing your food. I never though about what type
of chemicals, pesticides or antibiotics were used before grocery items reached the store.
Now I do know and I choose to buy from companies that care about providing quality
organic products.

Pete and Gerry's organic eggs are free-range and produced without antibiotics, synthetic
pesticides and GMO's. Pete and Gerry's works with over 50 small family farms who welcome
visitors with open arms so that you can get a first hand look at what a real organic, free-range
family farm looks like.  The company also cares about sustainability. I love that they offer
a carton take back program to recycle empty cartons!

I love using seasonal fruit and vegetables, so when I noticed organic cranberries at the
grocery store I immediately put them in my cart for these muffins! I've been enjoying
more Paleo recipes lately and decided to use almond flour for the muffins. I love the
nutty flavor combined with the fresh cranberries and clementine. If you don't have
clementine's you can certainly use a orange instead.

Paleo Cranberry Clementine Muffins are delicious and make a wonderful, healthy snack
this time of year.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
zest of one clementine or orange
3 large eggs (I love Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 T coconut oil, melted
2 T juice from clementine or orange
1/2 cup fresh cranberries, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
Whisk dry ingredients and clementine zest in a large mixing bowl.
Combine wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
Fold in cranberries.  Using a large cookie scoop, fill muffin cups 3/4 full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool muffins on a wire rack.

Yield - 9 muffins

Enjoy!
