    When I make a recipe, I first keep health in mind and try to find possible ways of making a recipe healthier. My Eggplant Pizza, Dates Protein Balls, and Honey Glazed Almonds, and examples of such healthy recipes. But how can we miss the amazing flavor of cranberry? Cranberries have been underrated, however, it deserves more attention, and hence orange cranberry muffins.

    Orange Cranberry Muffins

    I am a big fan of baking with wheat and that is what I have been teaching in my workshops too. I realized that eating wheat instead of all-purpose flour is the first step towards healthy eating. Reducing the amount of refined sugar is my second goal. Essentially we try to fight with three big white enemies of our health “Refined flour”, “Refined Sugar”, and “Refined Salt”.

    But in this orange cranberry muffins, I have moved a step forward and have cut down oil/butter in this recipe. Stop raising your eyebrows..lolz. Yes, you read it right. No fat content means absolutely zero oil/butter. Excited?

    To make the muffins looks more appealing, I have frosted them with whipped cream. But this is completely optional.

    For cranberry orange muffins

    Start by keeping your oven for preheating at 180 °C.

    Also, ensure that all the ingredients we are going to use are at room temperature.

    In a large mixing bowl, add condensed milk, orange zest, essence and orange juice. Using a spatula or whisker, mix your ingredients.

    Juice and condensed milk for Orange Cranberry Muffins

    Using a sifter, sieve whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Whenever you are baking a cake or muffins especially with wheat sieve the flour for sure. It results in light and soft bakes.

    Dry and wet ingredients for Orange Cranberry Muffins

    Gently fold the dry ingredients into wet ingredients using cut and fold method. This method will help to keep the air intact into the batter. There should be no lumps in the batter. Once you get a smooth batter, add cranberries to it and mix.

    Orange Cranberry Muffins batter

    Take a muffin tray and line it with muffin liners. Pour the batter into these muffin molds. Fill each liner up to half. Tap the tray once on the counter and keep it inside the preheated oven for baking at 180 °C approx. 20 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

    Batter for Orange Cranberry Muffins

    While baking cakes or muffins I only use bottom heating element and always place my baking tray on the middle rack. For me, it took 20 minutes to bake these muffins. Once baked take the muffin tray out from the oven and transfer the muffins on a cooling rack. Let them cool down.

    Orange Cranberry Muffins after baking

    The frosting is completely optional however if you are baking these for kids then they generally like such fancy stuff. A little bit of icing will take these muffins to another level and bring an extra curve on the faces of kids. Once the muffins are completely cool down, take out the whipped cream from refrigerator and frost the muffins with it.

    Get ready to get indulge with your Orange cranberry muffins made without oil/butter.

    Recipe Notes
    1. Based upon flour quality, the amount of liquid can vary. So you can add milk accordingly. However, I haven’t added milk as the batter was of required consistency.
    2. You can replace whole-wheat flour with All-purpose flour based upon your choice.
    3. I do not have tried and tested alternate of condensed milk for this recipe. So please follow the recipe as it is.
    4. I have used fresh orange juice. In case you don’t have fresh oranges, you can use Tetra pack one.
    5. You can bake these muffins on the gas stove.
