These muffins are easy to make and full of wholesome ingredients. Can be made with blood oranges or regular oranges. Free of dairy, eggs, and refined sugar; vegan friendly.
I look forward to blood orange season each year. They’re beautiful, delicious, and have a sweet yet sour flavor that is unlike your typical orange. Their juice is the brightest and most gorgeous reddish-pink color too, which is perfect for desserts!
The only problem is blood orange season is fairly short, usually lasting from late winter to early spring. Any regular orange can be used in place of these if you have trouble finding them. It’s delicious either way.
Because blood oranges can sometimes be a little tart, I made a creamy cashew glaze to drizzle over the top to help with the sweetness. It’s totally optional and really not necessary, especially if you prefer muffins that aren’t overly sweet.
I usually leave the glaze off of my muffins and enjoy them with a cup of green tea instead…and a cup of iced almond milk. I’m a weirdo and like options so I often have two drinks instead of one. 😉
Spelt flour isn’t gluten-free, but it’s said to be easier to digest for people with gluten sensitivities because it’s an ancient grain and not genetically modified like modern wheat. They are, however, free of eggs, dairy, and refined sugar. Vegan friendly too!
Please let me know if you give these a try..Enjoy!Print
