  • Soak dried cranberries in a bowl of hot water until plump, about 10 minutes; drain.

  • Combine whole wheat flour, white sugar, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Beat sweet potatoes, eggs, and coconut oil together in a separate bowl until smooth; stir into flour mixture until batter is smooth. Fold plump sweetened cranberries and pecans into batter; spoon into prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

4.29.19 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/242025/thanksgiving-muffins/ ... This is the best recipe I’ve made in a longggg time! Thank you for sharing your recipe! I had 15oz pumpkin purée to use & subbed it for the sweets. Rather than soak in water, I combined the dried cranberries with the pumpkin & coconut oil; refrig’d overnight. Instead of oat flour, oats & I may increase to 3/4c next time. The batter was pretty thick. I added a half cup milk. It lightened them considerably, maybe too much. The density was more like cupcakes. Not a complaint; observation. Betz had some jumbo jumbo muffins! This yielded 18 regulars in my house. C: ... Notes: E said these - thanksgiving ones were “Fantastic” These ... https://www.allrecipes.com/personal-recipe/62167408/fall-festival-pumpkin-cranberry-muffins/ ... were too sweet & spiced, but good; Not better than Thanksgiving ones.

My daughter is a Celiac so we need to make everything gluten free. Substituted Gf baking flour and gf corn flour for the two flours in the recipe. Also used fresh sweet potatoes instead of canned. Turned out great! Read More

I find it hard to believe these are over 500 calories - they’re really pretty healthy. Like some others, I used a can of pumpkin in place of the sweet potatoes. I also substituted ground flax seed for the oatmeal flour - just because I had it - and added a teaspoon of vanilla. The recipe made 9 large muffins and 1 small loaf. They were surprisingly moist (wheat flour...) and very tasty. I will be making these again! Thanks! Read More

I didn't have sweet potatoes in the house so I substituted sweet potatoes and oil for a can of sugar free apple pie. The cupcakes were delicious Read More
