Here's a yummy recipe for Foodie Friday:

Chocolate-Orange Muffins

1 orange
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup orange juice
1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour

Mix all dry
Mix all wet in blender, including orange cut into four, without seeds (don't peel the orange!  Skin and all!)
Pour over dry, and barely mix the two mixtures together
Pour into greased muffin tins
May make 9 good sized muffins (or 12 small)
Bake at 400F for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean

****Can add raisins, but dark chocolate is best!!!

This is a very easy but fun recipe.  You start with an orange.  I used an organically grown one, washed and sliced it and removed the seeds.

Put the orange with peel still on into the blender and add the other liquid ingredients.

it all together.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.

Bake and eat.  YUM!

    I would use dark chocolate. I use a candy bar and crush it but you could use chocolate chips. I would use a half a bag. Enjoy!
