Orange Cranberry Muffins

A few months ago when McDonald's was giving away free small coffee, I took the kids to Playland  to meet up with some friends quite a number of times.  During these play groups I also discovered their Slim Sensations Orange Cranberry Muffins and became addicted.  They were sooooo good!  They are supposedly healthy, but nothing that good could possibly be healthy.

Since we're participating in the pantry challenge this month and I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle, I thought I would make my own.  I adapted my recipe from this recipe.

Orange Cranberry Muffins
  • 1/3 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (I used craisins, cause it was what I had in pantry)
Preheat oven at 350.

Mix butter, egg, sugar and orange juice.  Add in remaining dry ingrediens.
Bake for 15 minutes.

(Next time, I think I will grate some orange rind into the mix, to see if the orange flavour will be a little stronger.)

Let me know if you try them and what you think.

I have an orange muffin recipe where you puree a whole orange with some orange juice - it's delicious! I usually put dates or chocolate chips in them, but cranberries would be really good too.

We just had orange cranberry muffins for breakfast. Our recipe is quite similar, we just use whole wheat flour and applesauce in place of the oil. Delicious.
