Healthy Protein Coconut Cranberry muffins

I am doing super great on my goals. My daughter gets married in a little over 2 weeks and I want to make sure I look and feel good for the event. But man I do love carbs. Carbs don't love me. I eat healthy carbs like fruit and beans, but grain and I have to break up anytime I am trying to tone up. 

I got some gorgeous cranberries in my CSA Organic box, so I decided to use them in a healthy muffin I could reach for when a carb craving comes along. 

Cranberries are misunderstood. People overlook them and reach for traditional berries, when the truth is, they are just as good! I love the tangy tartness it brings to these muffins that are low carb high protein and gluten-free. Enjoy my healthy friends. Nothing better than muffins!
