Cranberry Orange Muffins

This summer I needed some quiet time to work on a writing project, so I checked into Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires for a few days. While there, I became mildly obsessed with these muffins, so I asked their chef for the recipe. While some muffins are loaded with saturated fat and sugar, these ones are relatively guilt-free—always a good way to start the day. (I like to save my guilt for nighttime!)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest (about the zest of two oranges)
  • 1 cup frozen sliced cranberries (still frozen)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with canola oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. In a medium bowl combine egg, orange juice, applesauce, oil and orange zest.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
