Giant Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

A breakfast creation I came up with when nothing else seemed just right!
A giant, hearty muffin with less than 330 calories,  3 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber!!
Excellent toasted!!




1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour(eagle mills with ultragrain for the extra fiber boost)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
scant 1/2 tsp nutmeg
scant 1/2 tsp ginger
scant 1/4 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp cloves
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin tins
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl beat eggs with pumpkin and applesauce. Add to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fold in cranberries.
Scoop by 1/2 cup into greased LARGE muffin cups(or proceed with regular sized muffin tins, filling 3/4 full or so)

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean(this is based on LARGE muffins, will be less if you do smaller ones)
