Cranberry Lemon Blender Muffins

These muffins are delicious, and taste just like the cranberry lemon muffins I've had at the local coffee shop. The blender is great for this recipe, because it will shrink down all the dried cranberry bits so you get all of the flavour in every bite. If you don't use a blender, that's okay too, your muffins will just have bigger cranberry pieces. 




Here is my recipe for Vegan Cranberry Lemon Muffins:

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp Ground Flax
6 Tbsp Water
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Lemon Extract
1 Tbsp Lemon Zest
1/2 Cup Cashew Milk

1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 Cup Dried Sweetened Cranberries

Instructions:

Preheat Oven to 350'

Mix together ground flax and water. Let sit for 5 minutes. 

Add flax mixture, vegetable oil, sugars, lemon extract and lemon zest, into a blender. Blend until combined. 

Add Cashew Milk, Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and Cranberries, into the blender, and blend until combined. 

Pour into non-stick or parchment lined mini-muffin tins.

Bake at 350' for 17 minutes. 

Let cool and enjoy!

A Lesson to Military Wives

Today I was writing about how lucky I am to be surrounded by so many supportive people, and it got me thinking. When I agreed to marry my now-husband, and move away from our family and friends, to live the military life, I didn't know what to expect. It was a big change, I was excited to be moving somewhere new with my husband and starting our family together; on the other hand, I was moving away from my support system, my family, my friends, my job. Everything I had spent twenty-five years growing with, that was once just a quick walk or drive down the road, was now a long drive down several highways, and a quick phone call away. That's scary, but do you know what? I am so happy I took that leap of faith with my husband. 
I love our life where we are, in our home, with our own little family, with our new friends, in a new town - this is our life. This is not to say I don't miss our friends and family back in our hometown, because I do, but I make the most of what is give…
