Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
