Yield – 18 regular sized muffins, or 12 regular sized muffins plus 12 mini muffins

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – Regular sized muffins:  16-18 minutes. Mini muffins: 13-15 minutes.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 4 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 medium Jonathon or Macintosh apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 12 muffin tin wells and 12 mini muffin wells, or 18 regular size muffin tin wells.


  • In stand mixer or large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, applesauce, oil and milk.


  • In small mixing bowl, combine white flour, wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the wet ingredients in the mixer/mixing bowl and combine until batter forms.




  • In another small bowl, stir together cranberries, finely chopped apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Fold the cranberries and apples into the batter.



  • Bake in preheated oven, using these time frames: Regular sized muffins for 16-18 minutes. Or mini muffins for 13-15 minutes.


**Note: If you don’t use all the wells in your muffin tin, just fill them with water so they don’t brown.  Plus the water creates a nice steamy environment in the oven!

Made these this morning as soon as I saw your post – delicious! I love when you post a recipe that I have all the ingredients for so I can make it right away.

So I was wondering why you had candles coming out of your batter mix, then I realized that was your WISK! Where did you ever find such a fun and colorful wisk? I want one! :)

I got apples for 30¢ a pound last night at Target, so I stocked up… I think I might use some to make these this afternoon. They look awesome!!

These look sooo good. Think I will have to try these. I really like cranberry orange nut muffins too. Thanks. BTW, I made your Blackeye Pea Casserole last night and it was a big hit.

My toddler loves helping when I use my kitchenaid, too. His “help” takes baking to a whole new level! Just wanted to let you know I really appreciate your blog–what a blessing it has been to my family. Thank you!
