I made them low-sugar but substituting Baking Splenda for the brown sugar. Also, I couldn't find Wheat Bran so I used Wheat Germ and they still turned out fantastic!

I have been making these muffins just as the recipe states for over a year and they are wonderful! Moist, orangey, freeze well if you can save any back! They are always well recieved, even by those not so health-conscious. If you do not have a food processor, use a blender, half the ingredients at a time and it works fine. I was intending to post this, but glad you have done it. Thanks!!

I love these muffins! The recipe should remind bakers to wash & scrub the nasty pesticides off the orange skins (I forgot the first time I made them, as I'm not used to baking with the entire orange).
