Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins (low fat)

Total Time

Reduce the fat content without reducing the taste! These muffins are great and work well with a variety of fruit. You can also adjust the fruit and chocolate chips to your tastes. I made a dozen of these to take to the old-age home where I volunteer and when I came into the kitchen a couple of hours later, half of them were gone!

These were great on my second try. Definitely use 2 medium sized oranges; if they're large, maybe one and a half. Three was toooo much - they turned out more like a thick pudding first time around. I put the entire orange in - rind and all, cut into eighths (with any seeds removed). I also used whole wheat pastry flour with good success and more fiber. The final end result deserves 4 stars; I deduct one for needing slightly better instructions.
