Wow, that name is a mouthful How about "crananasauce muffins"? These turned out moist and delicious. I do not need to eat GF, but I make it for friends. Non the less, I loved these too. They could be made dairy free with a coconut oil substitute for the butter.

How To Make banana applesauce cranberry gluten free muffins

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375. In a mixing bowl put the melted butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, smashed banana and applesauce. Whisk this together.
  • 2
    In another bowl whisk the GF baking mix, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and xanthum gum.
  • 3
    Mix the wet ingredients with the dry. Stir gently until mixed. It too runny, add a little more baking mix. Then add the Cranberries. I just added a big handful. Gently stir in.
  • 4
    Spoon into prepared muffin pans. Sprinkle tops with the cinnamon sugar. Bake for about 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out with crumbs, not batter. Let cool slightly before moving. Do not cover until totally cool. GF items do not seem, in my experience, to like steam.
