There are countless ways to enjoy these breakfast muffins. However, this is one way that I enjoy my muffins in the morning and just had to share this scrumptious recipe with you. If you don’t like oranges, switch it up, try another fruit such as cherry or pineapple. That’s the wonderful thing about muffins they’re so versatile!

It's hard to believe that there are so many recipes for breakfast muffins, but you'll be surprised at how these tasty muffins can be made to be actually healthy. With your leftover oranges, you can make a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Oranges and other citrus fruits are a great way to get your daily dose of vitamin C! They also happen to be high in fiber, so they'll help you feel full longer than most foods. The best part? These delicious treats taste absolutely wonderful too 🙂

Oranges are a wonderful, low-calorie fruit that can help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. While they taste sweet and offer incredible flavor in your diet plan – it's the lack of natural sugars like those found in most other fruits for example which makes oranges so great.

Can you substitute orange juice for milk in a muffin recipe?

Milk can be substituted 1:1 for orange juice in muffin recipes. Both milk and orange juice add moisture, but it may take a little longer for some recipes to bake through if you choose to substitute orange juice for milk.

It’s important to note that this recipe doesn’t use a ton of orange juice and already includes milk. Therefore, you’ll want to replace the exact amount of juice you were going to use with that much extra milk. You don’t want to cause your muffins to be too thin or this will cause them to rise and then fall which will give you flat heavy muffins, not the warm fluffy muffins we all love and crave.

How do I store and warm my muffins?

Once cool, these muffins may keep at room temperature for at least five days in an airtight container. You can put them in a refrigerator if you want or keep them on the shelf for a few days longer, if you wish.

You can put all of your leftover muffins in the microwave before eating. The heat is 10-15 seconds long or until the desired temperature is achieved.

Can you freeze muffins?

Yes, you can freeze chocolate chip muffins. I recommend storing them on a lined tray, then securing them in a reusable freezer bag. Reheat in the microwave until warm! Breakfast muffins can remain frozen for three months.

Orange Breakfast Muffins are a great way to start the day, and this recipe is perfect for when you're in need of something new. Featuring fresh-squeezed orange juice, this muffin recipe is packed with flavor and nutrients, making them just what you need to fuel your body each morning. Plus they're easy to make and pack up well for on-the-go mornings!

  • Do not open the oven door or your muffins will fall.
  • Do not beat the dough like a cake,this will prevent the muffins from rising and it will make them heavy.
  • Never fill the muffin molds more than three-quarters full and make sure to place them in the center of the oven.
  • Using vegetable oil results in lighter muffins because it prevents gluten formation in the flour. On the other hand, butter adds more fluffiness to the dough.
  • Silicone molds give better results than paper molds, which burn easily.
