Strawberry Orange Muffins

Strawberry Orange Muffins

Recipe adapted from My Recipes

1 ¼ cup halved strawberries
2 tablespoons smartbalance
1 ½ tablespoon grated orange rind
2 eggs
1 cup whole wheat flour
¾ cup all purpose flour
3 tablespoons fat free milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Fresh orange juice squeezed from half of the orange
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a food processor, chop the orange rind into tiny pieces. Add in the eggs and pulse for about 2 seconds.  

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the egg and orange rind mixture, the orange juice, and milk. Stir until well combined – may need to add a little more milk if the mixture is too dry.
Fold in the strawberries. Pour batter into muffin pan. I like bigger muffins so I made 10 generous sized muffins instead of 12.
Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
