Looking for a quick grab and go breakfast? Then, these plant-based Cranberry Walnut Muffins are must try!

Easy Gluten Free Cranberry Walnut Muffins

I started the Silk® 30-Day Challenge recently, and as a result, I’ve been trying to eat more plant-based foods at breakfast. I’m taking it step-by-step, because as the Silk® motto goes “Progress is Perfection®!” A result of that quest are these easy Cranberry Walnut Muffins.

With just 12-ingredients, these muffins are so easy to make.

I started off by grabbing all the ingredients, including Silk® Almond Yogurt Alternative and more Silk® Almondmilk while I was on a grocery-run at Walmart. Walmart and Silk® make it so much easier for me to accomplish my health and wellness choices.

Silk At Walmart

I used a combination of almond meal and oat flour for these muffins, as I love the texture almond meal lends to gluten free recipes. By the way, I grind a batch of rolled oats in my blender and store the resulting oat “flour” in an airtight container to use in recipes.

Instead of butter and eggs, I used creamy almond butter, and Silk® Almond Yogurt Alternative. By the way, a trick I have learned from good ‘ol Google when it comes to measuring almond butter, make sure you spray your measuring cup with cooking spray as the almond butter (or any other nut butter) will not stick to the measuring cup. After having enjoyed Silk® Almondmilk in this Apple Pecan Breakfast Bread, I also used it in these Cranberry Walnut Muffins.

Powered with walnuts and cranberries, these muffins are a powerhouse of ingredients. There were several times when these Cranberry Walnut Muffins powered me through my mornings and afternoon slumps. Some days, I even crumbled up a muffin into a bowl of Silk® Almond Yogurt Alternative.

By the way, deliciously creamy, Silk® Almond Yogurt Alternative comes loaded with 5 grams of plant protein. Gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan, Silk® Almond Yogurt Alternative contains live and active cultures.

I have been reluctant to incorporate plant-based baked breakfast treats into my day, as most of the plant-based baked goods I’ve tried are either too sweet or too gummy or both – like my first trial of that apple pecan bread was.

But, after several trips to Walmart to stock up on ingredients and a couple of tries, I managed to come up with these tasty vegan Cranberry Walnut Muffins.
