I was skeptical of orange muffins, but I made this recipe to use up some orange juice that was close to the expiration date. The muffins turned out amazing! I reduced the sugar in the recipe to about 1/3 cup but then sprinkled raw sugar and finely chopped almonds on top. I'll definitely make these again.
