Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Submitted by: WESTENDGIRL75

Introduction

Can be prepared as a cake with lemon frosting, I recommend it as a filling as the berries float to the top and make such a pretty topping I don't like to cover it up with frosting. As a cake, loaf or muffins, this is a low fat, lower sugar, higher fibre alternative to traditional lemon-cranberry recipies.

    I made this gluten-free for my mom. I used 1 cup GF All-purpose flour and 1 cup Soy flour for some protein. I used 4 egg whites instead of 2 eggs, and used only 2/3 cup of chopped cranberries. I also didn't have any honey so I just substituted it for applesauce. Very yummy muffins! - 7/12/09

  • I love lemon anything, so when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it. Besides the muffins sticking to the paper liners, the taste was pretty good, even though there is no oil or butter in this recipe. I didn't add the honey and I used frozen blueberries instead of cranberries. - 2/2/11
