Cranberries make these muffins a bit tart; sliced almonds add some crunch and heart-healthy unsaturated fat.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour bobsredmill.com
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Coarse salt
  • 2/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 2/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 16 cups of
    two 12-cup muffin tins with baking cups,
    and lightly coat each with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk together sugar, flours, baking soda,
    and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Whisk
    together milk, yogurt, eggs, and orange zest
    and juice in a medium bowl. Fold milk
    mixture into flour mixture, then gently fold
    in cranberries until combined.

  3. Spoon batter into baking cups until each
    is three-quarters full. Sprinkle with almonds.
    Bake until a toothpick inserted into the
    center of each comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

    cool for 10 minutes. Turn out muffins onto
    racks, and let cool completely.

    These turned out delicious, I did make a few modifications though! I omitted the yogurt, since I didn't have any. I used frozen blueberries rather than cranberries, and the thing that made the most difference: I put 1 tsp almond extract into the batter ! They turned out delish, thanks Martha!
