Orange Muffins

These are wonderful, and very easy.  The have just the right amount of orange flavor.  I also tried using lemons,   Yuck to much pith and it leaves an after taste.  Was a good idea but not a tasty one.  :)   May try it with just the juice from lemons and let you know.    I found this recipe here.
I altered the recipe a bit, I used whole wheat flour and some quick oats.  The original recipe called for all white flour.  Trying to cook a bit more healthy.
They are very moist, sure hope you'll try them.  It's a great way to use up oranges, peel and all, who would have thunk??  :)


Servings: 12 regular muffins or 6 large muffins
  • 1 orange, quartered and seeds removed (with peel) 
  • 1/2 cup orange juice  
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine (I used butter)
  •  3/4 cups  AP flour  
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda      
  • Directions:
    Preheat oven 400 degrees.  Line muffin tins or spray with cooking spray and set aside.
    In a food processor or blender, (I used a blender) add orange and orange juice, puree.  Add the butter and egg and mis until blended.   Pour into a large bowl.
    Combine all dry ingredients and add all at once  to orange mixture.  Stir until blended.  Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until tester comes out clean.  Let set for 5 minutes and remove from pan.  ENJOY.

    Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and Remember to Find the Time to Do All the things You Love.
