Election Day Muffins

It's time to vote, America! If, like me, you have to bring your kids along to your polling place, make up a batch of these red-white(ish)-and-blue muffins for kiddo to munch on while you choose the next President!

Election Day Muffins
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 20 minutes

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp applesauce
2 Tbsp canola oil
2 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup cranberries

Preheat the oven to 400F. Line 10 muffin cups with liners. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, applesauce, canola oil, molasses, and maple syrup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until just combined. Gently fold in the blueberries and cranberries.

Divide the mixture evenly between 10 muffin cups; bake for 20 minutes, until the edges are golden.
