A tasty way to get your fiber! I also plan on trying them with all orange juice in place of the milk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, squeeze orange juice from orange(s) and combine with enough low-fat milk to make 2 cups total. Add zest from orange(s). Mix in applesauce, vanilla and eggs. Add wet ingredient mixture to dry ingredients and mix well by hand. Stir in cranberries.
  3. Divide between muffin tins, and bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes.

Very good muffins, and very moist for being so low in fat. I tried the all orange juice version suggested in the description. Worked great! I used oat bran instead of wheat bran, also. Will make these a part of my muffin repertoire.

Delicious! I wasn't really looking for a low-fat recipe, so I replaced the applesauce with canola oil, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly - came out beautifully! I'm finding that the next day they are even better as the orange flavor comes out a bit more. Thanks for the recipe - I'll be adding this one to my regular rotation!

Followed the recipe almost to a "t" and these came out wonderful. I halved the ingredients and got 14 muffins. Moist, but not too dense. Would be great for an "on the go" breakfast.
