mashed, cooked sweet potato
large egg whites
1 1/4 cups
whole wheat flour
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!
Followed the recipe exactly, including bake time, and the muffins turned out perfect. They did taste healthy. You can interpret that any way you wish. Liked the orange notes. Maybe cut back on the amount of cranberry sauce to 3/4 cup. Any more and I think the muffins would be too dry. These would be perfect for a winter brunch.
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!
this recipes really great only one thing canola oil (and vegetable) oils really bad for you, you should us olive oil :)
Delicious! I used whole berry cranberry sauce. I'd recommend sprinkling sugar or cinnamon sugar on top before baking.
