Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed, cooked sweet potato

  • 2 large egg whites

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup cranberry sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.

  2. Mix sweet potato, egg whites, sugar, water, applesauce, canola oil, vanilla extract, and orange zest together in a bowl.

  3. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Mix flour mixture into sweet potato mixture until just combined. Gently stir cranberry sauce into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin.
