    kitchengrrl's Note:

    This is my adjustment of a recipe from the Dec. 2004 issue of Martha Stewart Living. I wanted to make it healthier by adding more whole grains, so I did and it's yummy. Also, I have not added the orange peel myself yet, but I can tell it would be perfect. These are wonderful light muffins, stacked high and a beautiful color.
