Cranberry Orange Muffins

These are some of our favorite Christmas eats! My sister-in-law Miriam Sellers passed the recipe onto me when I married into the family (she is a remarkable cook and can make healthy food taste sinful).  Enjoy!
1 3/4 c. Whole Wheat Flour
2 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
3/4 c. Sugar (or sweetener of choice)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/3 c. Butter (melted)
1/2 c. Milk
1 Egg slightly beaten
1 tsp. Orange peel
1/2 c. chopped Cranberries
1/2 c. grated Apple
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients together.  Make a hole in the dry ingredients, add wet ingredients into the hole.  Mix until moistened, then add cranberries and apples.  Do not over mix   Place in lined or greased muffin tins.  Bake for 13-17 minutes, or until golden brown.  Lightly butter top and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
