White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Muffins Recipe

While these white chocolate cranberry orange muffins may be made from wholesome ingredients, they taste like the real deal! Perfect for an easy weekend brunch or to pack in your kids' lunch box for a treat, these paleo muffins have a moist texture and intense, mouthwatering flavor. Your family will be begging you to keep baking them!

Usually, white chocolate baked goods call for white chocolate chips — smooth, creamy, and loaded with tons of sugar (that is unless you make our DIY White Chocolate Chips!). Cacao butter is at the heart of white chocolate, and it takes the recipe back to its roots. It doesn’t melt the same as the chips though since it’s much harder. You probably don’t want to put chunks of unsweetened cacao butter in your muffins. Not something that’s fun to bite into! I decided to bypass the whole chips ordeal and incorporate Wildly Organic Cacao Butter into the entire batter. By melting the cacao butter and Wildly Organic Refined Coconut Oil together, it infuses the entire muffin with white chocolate flavor. Yum!

These cranberry orange muffins are great for breakfast, a dessert, or a midday snack. They’re mildly sweet and packed with flavor. In fact, I love making them the night before a busy morning so I have something quick and easy to grab and go. Unlike some other muffins, these paleo white chocolate cranberry orange muffins are made with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about feeding your family!

    Ingredients
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin tin with 18 muffin wells and set aside.
    2. Over medium/low heat, melt the coconut oil and cacao butter together. Stir constantly just until melted.
    3. Pour the oil mixture into a mixing bowl and add the orange oil, agave, and baking powder, stirring to combine.
    4. Stir in the eggs, then stir in the coconut flour. I don't add the eggs in first so they won't scramble in the hot oil!
    5. Add the nuts and cranberries.
    6. Spoon the batter into a muffin pan and fill the cups about 2/3 full.
    7. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes until the muffins are lightly browned and the center is no longer wet when a toothpick is inserted into the middle. Allow cooling before serving.
