Whole Wheat Oatmeal-Cranberry Muffins
I bought buttermilk recently to make the Granola Muffins and the Buckwheat Amaranth Muffins. Those two combined used a total of two cups, so I had two cups left to finish in order to avoid wasting any of the buttermilk. I searched the blogs I read for recipes and found these Whole Wheat Oatmeal-Cranberry Muffins. I like oats in anything so I decided to make them.
These are fantastic muffins. They are extremely moist and tasty. I substituted oil for the 2 tablespoons of applesauce because I didn't have any, but I'd like to try it that way next time to make them healthier. I was hesitant about the dried cranberries, since they are kinda boring, but I went with them anyway and I think they work really well here. I'd like to try some frozen cranberries, or orange zest instead of the cinnamon. I think this could be a great base for a lot of other flavor combinations and different fresh, frozen or dried fruits.
