Apple & Cranberry Muffins

I’m a sucker for seasonal produce. This week, cranberries came home with me. I’ve been trying to branch out in the paleo baking world and it seemed fitting these bright beauties and all their tartness be tossed together with apples, cinnamon & nutmeg and baked into perfection. Makes 2 dozen.

¾ tsp. sea salt

1tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. nutmeg

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

Apple & cranberry muffins are a perfect way to shake up your everyday morning routine. Whip up a batch for Thanksgiving morning — a great way to fuel yourself before you hit your local Turkey Trot or a morning game of football.
