Healthy Cranberry Orange Chocolate Chunk Muffins

  • Author: Allison
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


These healthy cranberry orange chocolate chunk muffins are sweetened with maple syrup and naturally gluten-free, since they are made with oat flour.


  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup salted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 80-100 gram dark chocolate bar, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease with butter. 
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add the butter, maple syrup, orange juice, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and orange zest. Whisk to combine. 
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine. Fold in the cranberries and dark chocolate, reserving twelve squares of chocolate for topping, if desired. 
  • Divide batter between the prepared muffin cups and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool fully. 
  • Store muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days, or in the fridge for up to a week. 


When measuring flour, it is important to use the spoon and level method so as not to over-pack your measuring cup with flour. Simply spoon flour into the measuring cup until overflowing, then level it off.
