  • Cooking spray
  • 2 Cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 Cup raw sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 ripe banana, peeled
  • 2/3 Cups orange juice
  • 2 Teaspoons orange zest
  • 6 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup fresh cranberries


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and if not using nonstick, line with paper or silicone cups. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together and set aside.

Mash the banana really well using a fork or potato masher and set aside. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in all of the remaining ingredients. Stir until just combined. Spoon batter into cups ¾ full and bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 15-25 minutes (bake time varies on cranberry size and their natural moisture). Immediately transfer the muffins to a wire rack and let cool.
