Cranberry Oat Muffins

Neighbor brought over a bag of fresh cranberries...what to do, what to do?  Well, most went into the freezer for another yummy day but a cupful went into this week's breakfast muffins.

3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c quick cooking oats
1/4 c wheat germ (can omit, or use a couple T flaxseed if you like)
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar (added in the end b/c I feared the cranberries would be too tart; might not need)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t ground cloves
2/3 c applesauce
1 egg
1 c buttermilk
1 c fresh cranberries, larger ones halved

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another.  Gently blend; add cranberries.  Pour into muffin tin prepared with nonstick spray.  Bake about 20 minutes at 350.  Let cool 5-10 minutes, then remove muffins and finish cooling on wire rack.  Makes 14.
