Orange Date Muffins


Recommended Posts

Here is the recipe from breakfastfordinner.net. I just do the liquid part in the blender then pour it into the dry ingredients in a bowl because I hate cleaning the blender. I always double it.

Orange Date Blender Muffins

These muffins use an entire orange and most of the mixing is done in a blender! A big favourite in this house.
