   You may use commercial or home made cranberry sauce
   but not artifically sweetened sauce (muffins will not
   rise.) .  Original recipe in The Lighthearted Cookbook
   by Anne Lindsay published in 1988 in Canada used
   whole-wheat flour, and 1/2 cup buttermilk or low-fat
   plain yogurt rather than sour milk.
   
   1/12 original recipe - 156 calories, 1 starch, 1 fat,
   1 fruit choice 5 grams fat, 2 grams protein, 27 grams
   carbohydrate, 23 mg cholesterol, 126 mg sodium   NOTE:
   listed ingredients & variations would be slightly
   different.
   
   Preheat oven to 400 F and spray at least 12 muffin
   cups lined with paper baking cups.  Low-fat muffins
   tend to stick even to non-stick pans.
   
   Measure 1/2 tbsp lemon juice in a measuring cup, fill
   to about 1/4 cup mark with fluid milk and add some
   skim milk powder to make it a little thicker. Set
   aside.
   
   Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
   
   Add remaining ingredients of your choice and stir
   until they are just combined.  Bake about 20 minutes
   or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
   Adjust time if muffins are made smaller.
   
   VARIATIONS, substitute for cranberry: Banana-Date -
   use 1 cup mashed banana and 1/2 cup dates or raisins.
   If 2 bananas are not quite 1 cup, concentrated orange
   juice or orange/pineapple may be added. (Tested Jan 94
   by Elizabeth Rodier, family member ate 2 warm ones.)
   
   Apple-Raisin - 1 cup applesauce plus 1/2 cup raisins,
   or coarsely chop an unpeeled apple in a food processor.
   
   Zucchini - 1 cup grated unpeeled zucchini plus 1/2 cup
   raisins.
   
   May be made as 16-18 small muffins or 9 inch square
   cake cut in the desired number of pieces.  For a
   diabetic meal plan, reduce the amount of sugar to 1/4
   cup or 1 tsp. per serving (recommended guideline of
   American Diabetes Assoc.)
   
   This recipe is typical of healthy heart recipes with
   reduced sodium, cholesterol and fat but more sugar
   than a typical diabetic recipe.
