Ok! Before I start, this is a recipe that happened by accident. I made the muffins and discovered, after the fact, that I had forgotten to add the sugar. The chocolate chips and the orange add enough sweetness that it’s not necessary to add sugar to the mix. But again, it’s just a happy accident.
This recipe is a hybrid, it’s a mixture of a yogurt muffin recipe and of a chocolate orange muffin recipe. If you wanted the sugared version, you would need to add 3/4 cups of brown sugar as well as 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.
This recipe makes 12 good portioned muffins (12 X 1/3 cup raw mix portion)
1/2 cup of peach yogurt
3/4 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of melted butter
2 cups of flour
2 blood oranges
1/2 cup chocolate chip
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 cup almond slivers
1/3 cup of brown sugar to be sprinkled on top of the muffins prior to baking the muffins
Peel the oranges and cut into small bitesized pieces
Drop into a bowl
Incorporate all ingredients into the same bowl
Take a muffin tin and spread the mix into the wholes (1/3 of a cup at a time)
Sprinkle a bit of brown sugar on top of each muffin
Bake at 350 for 22 minutes
Ben gave it three stars.
My husband gave the muffins 4 stars.
I’m quite happy with the reviews since the muffins are much healthier than usual. I loved substituting the yogurt with dairy like that. It provides a nice helping of calcium as well.
