  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp. grated orange rind (about one large orange)

  • 1/4 cup Pompeian Classic Mediterranean Olive Oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberries, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  2. In a large bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

  3. In another bowl, whisk orange rind, juice, olive oil, and egg to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just until moist. Fold in cranberries.

  4. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin pans. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar.

  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the muffins spring back when touched lightly in the center.

  6. Remove muffins from pan and cool on a wire rack (if liners stick to the pan, run a knife around the edge of the liner).
