Apple Cranberry Muffin and Banana Muffin

I don't know about you but I have mornings that I am so lazy to even get in front of the stove to cook breakfast. You can make this in batches , good for breakfast and snack too. Easy on the wallet and yummy in our belly.

APPLE CRANBERRY MUFFIN

2 eggs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 granny smith apples, peeled and diced  ( $1.79/lb)
1 cup dried cranberries ($3.00 / 1 lb bag)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar



Mix together the diced apples, dried cranberries and brown sugar and fold them into the batter just before  filling up the muffin tin.
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 12 regular size muffin tin wells or In my case i use muffin cups.
Add the eggs, white sugar, oil, milk, vanilla to a stand mixer or mixing bowl.  Mix until smooth.
Add in the dry ingredients (minus the apples, cranberries and brown sugar.) and mix until batter is smooth.
In a smaller mixing bowl, toss the apples, cranberries and brown sugar.  Fold into the muffin batter.  Pour into the greased muffin tin or your baking cups, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 22 to 24 minutes for regular size,  (Use a toothpick to test for doneness)cool before serving. Serve warm with some butter!



BANANA MUFFIN

1/2 c. honey or sugar is fine
1/2 c. oil
2 eggs
1 c. mashed bananas ( since we are banana crazy in this house, I always have stocks of very ripe bananas that I freeze for future use.)
1-1/2 c. all purpose flour or whole wheat flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

In a bowl combine salt, flour, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl combine honey, eggs, oil and banana making sure to mix well. Add banana blend to the flour mixture, careful not to over mix. Pour into greased muffin pans or paper muffin cups. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes. (Use a toothpick to test for doneness). Remove pan to rack, and let cool.  Best served warm. Makes 1 dozen muffins.
