These scrumptious orange cranberry sourdough muffins will quickly become a favorite in your household. Introducing sourdough discard to the muffin batter will only make this recipe miles better. So what are you waiting for?

  • Total Time: 27 mins
  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter discard
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit Meanwhile line a muffin tin with muffin liners, then set them aside.
  2. Mix the coconut oil and sugars together until well combined. Then add eggs, sourdough discard, vanilla extract, orange juice, and orange zest. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until well incorporated.

  • Your cranberries can be fresh or dried, I personally prefer to use frozen cranberries for this recipe, as they produce a perfect moist muffin once baked.
  • If you don’t like cranberries then you can certainly swap them for blueberries or raspberries.
  • If you have a carton of orange juice you can use that in place of fresh orange juice in this recipe.
  • You can replace butter with vegetable oil.
  • You can use any type of sugar you fancy, whether it’s white, brown, or coconut sugar, and the results won’t be negatively affected.
