I’m on a orange kick lately! Nothing wrong with that, right? I love the color. I love the fruit. It makes me smile & that’s always a good thing. I started out with the thought of making wheat bran muffins & here it is… orange poppy Chobani muffins. Ha ha. This is how my day has been going. They got a thumbs up from both of my girls. I’ll take that And now it’s time for me to share it with you…
3/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of butter or butter substitute, room temperature
Zest from one orange
1/2 cup of Chobani non fat plain yogurt
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of poppy seeds
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray your muffin tins with non stick baking spray or line with wrappers.
In your stand mixer bowl, cream sugar, butter and zest together. Add one egg at a time and beat. Add the Chobani and mix again.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, powder, salt and nutmeg. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat after each addition. Finally add the poppy seeds and mix until well blended.
Using a ice cream scoop, fill each muffin tin 3/4 of the way full and bake for 14-16 minutes. Makes one dozen muffins.
