Cranberries make these muffins a bit tart; sliced almonds add some crunch and heart-healthy unsaturated fat.

Here’s What You Need

  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Coarse salt
  • 2/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 2/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 16 cups of
    two 12-cup muffin tins with baking cups,
    and lightly coat each with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together sugar, flours, baking soda,
    and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Whisk
    together milk, yogurt, eggs, and orange zest
    and juice in a medium bowl. Fold milk
    mixture into flour mixture, then gently fold
    in cranberries until combined.
  3. Spoon batter into baking cups until each
    is three-quarters full. Sprinkle with almonds.
    Bake until a toothpick inserted into the
    center of each comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
    Transfer pans to wire racks, and let
    cool for 10 minutes. Turn out muffins onto
    racks, and let cool completely.
