These grain free lemon cranberry muffins are one of those basic kid-and-family-friendly recipes. Lemon and cranberry are a classic combination, making these muffins a great snack…or winter soup accompaniment.

The cranberries in this recipe are fruit-juice sweetened and dried, but as fresh cranberries are in supply in Vermont right now (yes, another food grown locally!), I will eventually try these with fresh cranberries with the following adaptation:

  • Instead of 3/4 cup of dried cranberries, I’ll use 1 cup of fresh.
  • I’ll also increase the honey by 2 tablespoons to counteract the tartness.

Enjoy this simple recipe and let me know how you make them and like them. Did you try fresh cranberries? How did they turn out?
