These gluten free Pumpkin Cranberry Orange Muffins are what I like to call “Morning Glory”. They are an early morning, warm cup of chai tea with a splash of eggnog, and a cozy-blanket-snuggle-on-the-sofa type of muffins.
ANNND that may or may not be my current situation, minus the sofa snuggle because WE MOVED!!! and I sold all of our furniture on OfferUp before moving.
Very good idea, but very bad idea… have you been there?
Let’s just say that’s been a little stressful trying to find just the right pieces for this new space… and then realizing it can take MONTHS to get the new stuff in. WHAT?! I’m like oh…. dang. whoops. rookie mistake.
My desk should be in today so I can get my studio space more put together, so that’s why it’s been a little quiet on this blog the last two weeks. Packing and unpacking and moving and pinning all the modern farmhouse meets mid century mod things.
I posted a pic of these muffins on Insta-stories last Friday hoping to get it together enough to get the recipe posted but I could only manage to get the photos edited and recipe typed up…. so thanks to my Insta friends for being patient with this mama as she get’s moved in to her new home :) MUCH LOVE for you.

And can you believe these gorgeous Pumpkin Cranberry Orange Muffins are gluten free?! So my husband has been eating them too :)
It can be hard cooking for a gluten sensitive person when the whole family doesn’t have to eat gluten free, but with these muffins you’d never know they were gluten free because they taste so yummy.
Of course you can sub in regular all purpose flour or even white whole wheat (my personal fav) into these babies and they will be just as delicious.
