Cran-Apple-Carrot Muffins

My youngest son wanted muffins for his snack day at preschool and when I asked him what kind he kept changing his I took the 3 most requested flavors and combined them... these would be great to pop in the freezer for a quick pull out breakfast too!

2 medium apples, shredded
2 medium carrots, shredded
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 TB baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger

Preheat oven to 350, grease muffin tins. (I use mini-muffin tins, this recipe made 48)

In a bowl combine apples, carrots and sugar. Allow to sit for a minute or two. Add in cranberries, applesauce and eggs, mix well.

In another bowl mix flours, baking powder and soda, cinnamon and ginger.

Add dry ingredients to wet, mix well.

Scoop by spoonfuls into prepared muffin tins, filling about 3/4 full or so.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean(times will vary if you use larger muffin pans)
