White Chocolate Cranberry Muffins

I set out to make muffins for our Sunday school class this evening. It was easy to find recipes that aren't healthy, so I had to get creative. I'm pretty pleased with the results. 

So, without further ado, I give you the recipe that I found online and then hijacked. 

1 c whole wheat flour
1 c all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 egg
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 c granulated white sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 cup applesauce
1c + 1 T plain yogurt (vanilla would work too, and then you can cut out some white sugar)
1 c Craisins (you can use fresh or frozen if you prefer, but sweeten them if you decide to go that route)
3/4 c white baking chips

Preheat your oven to 375 F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. 
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda and blend all together. 
In a medium bowl, combine egg, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, applesauce and yogurt. Whisk until smooth.
Add wet ingredients to dry and stir as little as possible until mixture is moist throughout. Fold in Craisins and chips. Bake for about 25 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean. Voila!
