Cranberry-Blueberry Muffins

Cranberry-Blueberry MuffinsYour taste buds will never believe these flavor-filled muffins from Weight Watcher’s “Simply the Best” cookbook are low-fat and low-calorie!

2-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold reduced-calorie margarine, diced
3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/3 cup thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
24 dried apricot halves, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray eighteen 2-3/4″ nonstick muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper liners.

2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, orange juice concentrate and eggs. Stir into the flour mixture until just combined (do not over-mix). Gently stir in the blueberries, cranberries and apricots.

4. Spoon the batter into the cups, filling each about 2/3rds full. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack 10 minutes. Remove from the cups and cool completely on the rack. Makes 18 servings.
