Gluten free vegan cranberry coffee cake muffins. Fluffy vanilla cake, studded with fresh cranberries and topped with a crunchy cinnamon topping.
It’s cranberry season! Yes, I get excited about these festive, delicious little berries. They only come around this time of year so I always stock up and make all the cranberry things. Cranberry apple pie, cranberry sauce, berry cranberry smoothie and cranberry crumb bars.
I’m bringing cranberries to breakfast this time with my gluten free vegan cranberry coffee cake muffins. A light, tender vanilla cake made with my gluten-free flour blend, filled with sliced fresh cranberries. Love the touch of tartness that they bring to the muffins. A cinnamon crumb topping to top them off, which adds great texture and crunch.
These cranberry coffee cake muffins are a splendid way to celebrate the season of this gorgeous fruit. Warm out of the oven. You just can’t go wrong.
