Orange Cranberry Muffins
A Heart-Healthy Breakfast Recipe
- 1 cup cranberries
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 ½ cup orange juice
- 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup ground flaxseed
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. orange peel, grated
- 1 organic egg, beaten
- ¼ cup canola oil
Blend together cranberries, ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup orange juice. The recipe will come out better if the cranberries get mushed up. Mix together flour, ground flaxseed, remaining sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange peel. Combine beaten egg, oil, and remaining orange juice. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix. Fold in cranberry mixture with a few strokes. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Makes 12 medium muffins.
