  • 1

    tablespoon trans-free margarine or butter, melted

  • 1/2

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2

    cups whole wheat flour or whole grain pastry flour

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup granulated sugar

  • 3

    tablespoons grated orange zest

  • 1

    cup orange juice

  • 1/2

    cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 2

  • 1

    cup fresh cranberries, chopped

Directions

Directions Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the margarine or butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar, and orange zest. In another large bowl, mix the orange juice, applesauce, eggs, cranberries, and nuts, if desired. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. Evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin with the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before serving. Recipe Notes To make use of stale muffins, crumble them and lightly toast in a 350°F oven for about 15 minutes. Use the toasted crumbs to top desserts such as crisps, cobblers, betties, buckles, and crumb cakes.
