  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Stir milk and vinegar together in a small bowl.
  3. Mix whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, baking soda, ginger, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk pumpkin, brown sugar, white sugar, vegetable oil, and egg together in a separate bowl; beat in milk mixture until smooth. Stir flour mixture into pumpkin mixture until just combined. Fold in fresh and dried cranberries. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool muffins in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Milk and vinegar mixture is a simple substitute for buttermilk, which I seldom have on hand in my kitchen. 1/2 cup buttermilk could be used instead. Feel free to change the ratio of dried to fresh cranberries to adjust sweetness, or substitute nuts, chocolate chips, or other dried fruit.

I substituted coconut flour/almond meal flour for the AP flour. I also sub'd applesauce/coconut oil for the veg. oil. Instead of muffins I put in 7x10 pan and sprinkled coconut on the top. Delicious and good for you.

I used all whole wheat flour, and old fashioned oats (not quick oats) and they were still delicious. You wouldn't know the recipe was 'healthy!'

Yum! I substituted extra whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour. I live at high altitude but these turned out perfect, so moist and flavorful, not dense at all. I will definitely bake these again.
