Cranberry-Orange Muffins: Gluten-Free & Delicious!

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with Gluten Free and Wheat Free baking over the last few months. Here is a recipe that I made this weekend that was a huge hit (that means not only did I like it, but my husband, Mike, LOVED it...and if Mikey likes it... 

Cranberry-Orange Muffins - Gluten-Free
2 cup Gluten-Free Baking Mix (NOW foods and Bob's both make good ones and I'm sure there are many others.)
4 Tbs Orange juice
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
4 tsp Orange Rind
6 Tbs Grapeseed or olive oil
4 tbsp Agave nectar or honey
1 cup cranberry sauce (see below) or dried cranberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Cranberry Sauce:
1/2 cup fresh raw Cranberries
Juice from 1/2 Orange
2 tsp agave nectar

1. Mix Cranberry Sauce ingredients and heat until berries pop.  Let it cool..
 2. Mix wet ingredients, then add dry and mix
3. Fold in Cranberry Sauce and walnuts.
4. Bake all ingredients together at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.
