Top Review by Triple BQ

If I could this would have 10 stars. I have been trying to eat healthier and found this recipe. I'm not a really big fan of whole wheat or raisins so the first time I made this recipe I used 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat. I also used dried cranberries instead of raisins. They were so good I took one to work for a friend who loves orange cranberry as much as me. She begged me for the recipe. Today I made them with lemon for the orange, lemon juice for OJ the proper whole wheat to white flour and cranberries, no nuts. They are the most flavorful muffins I have ever had. Next time with the lemon I will add sliced almonds I didn't have any today. A definite keeper.
