Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. Mix sweet potato, egg whites, sugar, water, applesauce, canola oil, vanilla extract, and orange zest together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Mix flour mixture into sweet potato mixture until just combined. Gently stir cranberry sauce into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are browned and tops spring back when pressed lightly in the middle, about 30 minutes. Cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I did not have canola oil, I used vegetable oil instead. I also used a homemade unsweetened applesauce and whole berry cranberry sauce. Right before baking, I sprinkled a little granulated sugar over each muffin mound. I did get 12 really big muffins out of one recipe. Baked at 350*, they were done in just over 22 minutes. Though my husband did not care for these, the kids and I thought it was great. It had just enough sweetness from the cranberry sauce and the little bit of sugar that was added and these were VERY moist and flavorful. What a wonderful muffin recipe!

These are awesome! Though I changed a couple things. My applesauce is homemade, cortland apples. I didn't have canola oil, used vegetable. Did not have orange zest, used orange peel. These are all minor, though this last one is a biggie. I did not have a can of cranberry sauce, could not tell you if I ever have or will. So I used a half a cup or so of honey, added enough water to make it the consistency of what I think cranberry sauce would be and then added some Craisin's. The whole thing measured 1 cup. I did add cinnamon and sugar to the first batch though forgot it on the second. Loved it both ways!
