  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven 375F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and ground cloves until well combined; set aside.

In separate bowl, whisk neat egg with water until blended, then whisk in orange zest, orange juice, olive oil and vanilla until blended. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened; fold in cranberries. Scoop evenly into muffin cups.
