Whole Wheat Cranberry Spice Oat Muffins


½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup cranberries


¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon whole milk


1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, syrup and milk in a large bowl. Then sift in the dry ingredients and fold the batter together. Stir in the cranberries and fill each muffin tin about ¾ full.

3. For the topping, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add the vegetable oil and milk and pinch everything together with your fingers until pebbles form. Drop the topping evenly on the muffins.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
