Amazingly healthy muffins – Orange and Blueberry

This orange and blueberry muffin (flavors of summer when you get fresh of everything!) combines fresh orange juice, orange zest, and a heaping bowl of blueberries. The muffins are also LOW in sugar, like really low. Recipe adapted from here.

The muffins greatly compliment any suhoor meal because they’re packed with anti-oxidants, fresh orange flavor, and made with whole wheat.

3. Mix wet ingredients: eggs, sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, and orange juice.

4. Slowly add dry flour mix to wet ingredients until just combined (its okay if you see some flour bits). Make sure you DO NOT overmix or you will have a tough muffin.
