Hi Sarah here is my tasty muffin recipe from Alaska
Wild Cranberry Muffins (or Wild Blueberry Muffins)
By K. Fields of

2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

5 tbsp unsalted butter, softened

½ cup of applesauce
½ cup of sugar
2 large eggs

1 ½ cup plain yogurt

1 ½ cups of wild low-bush cranberries or wild blueberries (if wild berries are not available, blueberries or cranberries sold in grocery stores will work just fine)
1 cup of crushed walnuts or almonds (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350’ F

2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside

3. Using large mixing bowl, beat butter ad sugar together, beat in eggs one at a time, and mix in applesauce

4. Stir while slowly adding to the large mixing bowl half of the dry ingredients, mix thoroughly, and then mix in half of the yogurt. Mix in the remaining dry ingredients, then the remaining yogurt. Do not over mix. Fold in the berries and nuts

5. Use a standard 12 muffin pan. Coat each muffin cup lightly with olive oil to prevent sticking. Fill each muffin cup a little over halfway with batter. .

Bake until muffins are golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. To check if done…tap the top of a muffin lightly, if you leave no fingerprint it is done. Let cool in pan for about 5 minutes; remove muffins from pan by turning upside down and gently tapping pan on counter. Eat! Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing this recipe, K. Fields! I hope to give it a try soon!
