Easy and fluffy cranberry orange muffins recipe. These muffins are made with fresh cranberries, oranges, and whole wheat flour, then sprinkled with streusel topping before baking.



1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup orange juice

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 Tbsp butter, melted
