Cranberry Orange Muffins

I love muffins! Here is a delicious way to use all the lovely fresh cranberries that are on sale at the store right now. (Or freeze them to make these any time. They are delicious!

Cranberry Orange Muffins (makes about 30)
2 cups wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp grated orange zest
3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Lightly grease muffin pans.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest and cranberries. In a large bowl beat butter sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in juice. Add flour mixture, stirring until just moistened. Scoop into muffin cups making them about 2/3 full and bake about 25 minutes or until muffin bounces back when you press lightly on top.
