Orange Juice MuffinsSubmitted by: BUDGETMOM
IntroductionThese are great for breakfast. Sometimes I make a simple glaze out of powdered sugar and milk to drizzle over them. These are great for breakfast. Sometimes I make a simple glaze out of powdered sugar and milk to drizzle over them.
Number of Servings: 8
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup protein powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 TBSP honey
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind (optional)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 TBSP butter or coconut oil
Add chia seeds or flax for extra boost of nutrition.
In a large bowl combine the flour, protein powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and the orange rind, if you choose to use it. Mix these together with a fork or a whisk to make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed. Pour in the orange juice, crack in the egg, and measure in the oil. Stir the mixture up so that all the flour is moistened by the wet ingredients. Don't over mix it; the batter should still be lumpy. Turn the batter into 16 well oiled muffin cups and bake at 400° for about 15 minutes. When they are nicely browned on top, remove them from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
