You wanted this, right?

Me too. So here we are:

No Sugar No Fat Cranberry Orange Banana Muffins


  • 1 cup rough chopped fresh cranberries
  • 1 medium orange
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg (or flax-egg)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup nuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 375*
  2. Line the muffin tin with baking liners and then spray with non-stick spray.
  3. To a large mixing bowl, add the cranberries.
  4. Zest the orange into a measuring cup, and add the juice of the orange to measure 1/4 cup (if less, add water). Add this to the cranberries.
  5. Mash the 3 bananas, and add to the bowl.
  6. Add the egg (or flax-egg) and the applesauce. Mix the entire thing until combined.
  7. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and powder. Add to the cranberry mixture until blended. Stir in the nuts.
  8. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.
  9. Enjoy!

The crunch of the nuts and the tang of the cranberries totally make up for whatever sugar got left out- these are truly guilt free goodness and good energy on a busy morning as they freeze extremely well!

    I love the color of the cranberries in this muffin. So surprising that there is no sugar. I’m sure it helps the fruit flavors come alive. Perfect.
