an offering for you :: orange cranberry muffins

While I grasp moments of stillness with the Savior, and take a little blogging break…

…a recipe offering for you!  These orange cranberry muffins not only include some healthy goodness (okay, yes…there’s sugar!), they are a great treat for fall and winter mornings.

The mixture of tangy orange and sweet cranberry is just plain delicious!   Hope you enjoy…

Orange-Cranberry Muffins

1-1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup ground flaxseeds or raw wheat germ

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

3/4 cup packed brown sugar (or other sugar substitute, I used 1/2 cup turbinado)

1/4 cup oil

1 tsp grated orange rind

1/2 cup orange juice

2 large eggs

Oven at 375 degrees.  Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk and make a well in center of mixture.  Combine sugar, oil, rind, juice, and eggs; stir with a whisk.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir until just combined.  Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray or oil.  Bake for 17 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched in center.
