Recipe: Cranberry Orange Cassava Muffins

My latest baking obsession has been cassava flour! I love the chewy texture it produces and the neutral flavor it lends to almost any ingredient you add to it. Plus: it's naturally gluten-free (made from the cassava root) and nut-free, which makes these perfect as a school snack or lunchbox addition. These cranberry orange cassava muffins are a hit, in our house!

As perfect as these are year round, I am definitely going to be making them again before citrus is fully out of season!
