From The Big Book of Breakfast, 2003, by Maryana Vollstet. Use the rind and all! An organic orange would be best for this.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut orange into chunks and remove seeds. Place chunks in a food processor work bowl and process until finely ground. Add juice, dates, egg, and butter and process until blended.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Pour orange mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until blended. Spoon batter into paper-lined muffin tins, filling them about 3/4 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
