Cranberry White Chocolate Muffins

adapted from Playing House

1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cup yogurt
2 eggs
3 cups + 1 Tbsp flour (I used 1/2 white, 1/2 whole wheat)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup cranberries (I used lingon berries)

Preheat oven to 375 (190 C) and prepare a muffing tin. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar, then add applesauce, yogurt and eggs. In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients and then add them to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined. In a little bowl, place the berries and 1 Tbsp of flour, coat the berries with the flour so they don't sink to the bottom of your muffins. Then gently fold in chocolate chips and berries.

Fill the prepared muffin cups 3/4 of the way full and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke it in the center.

Let cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then remove and allow to cool on the counter.

I love the idea of cranberries and white chocolate together. Sounds delicious!

These look scrummy.

I have tried raspberry and white choc. combo, but not this one. I look forward to trying these when cranberries start appearing at the grocery store in the winter.
Thanks for sharing.
