Cran-Apple Muffins

Cran-Apple Muffins

(I talked about this recipe here)

1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted then slightly cooled
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup fresh cranberries, chopped (frozen cranberries work too)
1 1/2 cups apples, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, whisk flours, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center.
In another bowl, whisk butter, egg, buttermilk and apple juice.
Add the liquid mixture into the dry well and stir only until the flour is moistened.
Carefully fold in cranberries and apples.
Lightly spray a muffin pan with cooking spray. Divide batter between each cup.
Scatter turbinado sugar over each muffin. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Leave in pan 5 minutes and turn out muffins onto a wire rack to cool.
