Serves: 14 muffins
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ C all purpose flour
  • ¾ C granulated sugar
  • ½ C chopped walnuts
  • ½ C old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ C pumpkin puree
  • ½ C coconut oil, melted (needs to be in liquid form)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1¼ C fresh cranberries
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 12 cup standard muffin pan. You can also line with cupcake papers. NOTE: this recipe makes 14 muffins so you can use 2 muffin pans or you can reuse the pan you used for the initial batch of muffins.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, walnuts and oats. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, coconut oil and pumpkin puree. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix until incorporated. The batter will be thick and lumpy.
  3. Toss the cranberries in 1 tbsp of flour to coat. Carefully fold into the muffin batter.
  4. Fill each muffin cup ⅔ full.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the muffins comes out clean. If using fresh berries, reduce your baking time by about 5 minutes.
  6. Cool on a wire rack for 15-20 minutes before serving.
Notes
This recipe makes about 14 muffins. You can either use 2 muffin pans or reuse the pan you used for the first batch of muffins.
