So here's a confession. Every time I make my low carb cranberry sauce, it makes WAY more than my family of three typically consumes over a festive meal. This is intentional, because I know that most of you have bigger families than this – especially for celebrations! It isn't usually an issue, though, because I love a quick meal of a low carb tortilla, a few slices of cold turkey, and a dollop of cranberry sauce! However, it occurred to me that there might be more to these leftovers – and that's when  the idea to add them to a muffin came about!

Low Carb Cranberry Sauce

The recipe is based on my delicious low carb redcurrant muffins, and they can be enjoyed as a sweet treat, snack, or even for breakfast! They aren't super sweet though, so you may want to add in additional sweetener if that suits your taste.

How to Make Low Carb Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins

To make the batter for the muffins, combine almond flour, sweetener (I used Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!), and baking powder. You don't need a stand mixer for this, it's easy enough to do it by hand.

Add in some melted (and cooled) butter, two beaten eggs, unsweetened almond milk and a little salt. Stir well until everything is combined.Low Carb Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins - keto, gluten free, and sugar free recipe

Next, add the cranberry sauce. Don't stir it in completely, just turn the mixtures together a couple of times, then divide it between the cups of a lined six-hole muffin pan.

Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the center of the muffins is cooked.  After cooking, let them rest for 5 minutes then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.

Could I use unsweetened coconut milk for the almond milk?

I haven't tried it but it should be OK - slightly different flavor profile though!
