Cranberries make these muffins a bit tart; sliced almonds add some crunch and heart-healthy unsaturated fat.
Prep Time20 minutes
Total Time1 hour 20 minutes
Here’s What You Need
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
1 teaspoon baking soda
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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 16 cups of
two 12-cup muffin tins with baking cups,
and lightly coat each with cooking spray.
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.
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.
Transfer pans to wire racks, and let
cool for 10 minutes. Turn out muffins onto
racks, and let cool completely.
