Sugar Free Orange Walnut Muffins

Sugar Free Orange Walnut Muffins

ingredients for sugar free muffinsWhat you need:

  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375oF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and walnuts together.
  3. Sugar Free Muffin BatterIn a smaller bowl mix together the eggs, orange juice, and oil.
  4. Add the liquid to the dry mixture and stir about 20 to 30 times with a wooden spoon. Basically you just want all of the dry mixture to be moist.
  5. Add in blueberries and stir a couple of times.
  6. Spoon batter into greased muffin tins. Fill about 3/4 of the cup with batter. I used 24 mini muffin tins (it will also make 12 medium-large sized muffins).
  7. Bake in the over for about 15 minutes (or 20 – 22 minutes for 12 large muffins).
  8. The tops of the muffins will be spring back when touched if they are done.
  9. Flip onto a cooling rack and cool for a minute or two before serving.

Good thing Bram was there because he was definitely needed - when I took the muffins out of the oven I lost my grip and they tumbled to the floor

Overall – these muffins didn’t go that well. They had good texture and tasted o.k., but they were bland. My Mom suggested that I adjust the recipe to use apple juice instead of orange juice to make it a bit sweeter but then I will have to rename them!! 🙂

What do you think would make these muffins a bit tastier without adding sugar or Splenda? I would love to know!! Just be careful not to drop them on the floor like I did!!
