Low-Fat Orange-Chocolate Muffins
Contributed by Diane S.
Orange juice concentrate replaces part of the milk in the muffins, giving
them extra flavor.
3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed (optional)
Grease twenty-four 2-1/2" muffin cups or line the cups with paper bake cups.
Set the muffin pans aside.
In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking
soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Make a well in the center. In another mixing
bowl stir together eggs, milk, oil, thawed orange juice concentrate, and
orange peel. Add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened
(batter should be lumpy). Stir in chocolate pieces.
Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18 to 20
minutes or until golden. Remove from pans; serve warm. If desired, brush
muffin tops with a little orange juice concentrate.
Makes 24 muffins.
