Cranberry White Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins

Posted by on Feb 15, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

Although I haven’t always been much of a cook, one thing I have always enjoyed is baking.  I love nothing more than mixing up a batch of muffins, filling the house with the gorgeous smells of freshly baked goods, and then having delicious treats to snack on for days afterwards.

These muffins are particularly special. The flavors and textures are just amazing. They are moist, but with a nice crisp crust. The hazelnut oil gives them an amazingly rich and decadent flavor that when paired with chopped hazelnuts, vegan white chocolate chips and cranberries takes them to a flavor that nears muffin nirvana.  Seriously, these are the best vegan, gluten-free muffins I have ever had.
