Low Fat Cran-Blueberry Muffins step by step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and place one paper liner per well in a muffin tin..
  2. In a medium bowl place the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine..
  3. Add applesauce, milk and vanilla. Stir until just incorporated..
  4. Gently fold in cranberries and blueberries..
  5. Fill paper lined muffin cups evenly until all batter is used, a little over 3/4 full each. Mix additional sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of batter in each cup if desired..
  6. Bake in pre-heated oven 20-25 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over-Bake or they will be dry..
  7. Remove from oven. Let cool in muffin tin for 10 minutes. Remove muffins from tin and place on wire rack to cool completely. Eat and enjoy a "better for you" muffin!.
  8. NOTE: If you would like to enjoy these warm you will have to spray your paper liners with cooking spray. Due to the lack of oil they tend to stick to the liners while still warm. They sometimes stick when cool as well, so spraying anyway may be desired. Although this does add a trivial amount of oil. They always come clean out of the paper on day two without spray, for some crazy reason. Lol. You can also spray your muffin tin directly instead of using paper liners..
