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!
- 2 -3 oranges
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄3 cup skim milk (or low fat)
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (this amount is flexible)
- Puree oranges in a blender.
- Add in sugars, milk, and egg.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Add the orange mixture to the flour mixture and mix well.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Spoon batter into muffins tins.
- Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
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.
