These are dense muffins, but so good! They are FULL of fibre, which makes them an awesome health food, or to bring on trips. The orange flavour is not at all overwhelming, and the kids love them since there’s chocolate chips. This is a large batch, so I freeze the extras until a later time.
Orange Chocolate Chips Bran Muffins
2 oranges, peeled and blended up
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 Tbsp vinegar mixed with the cup of milk)
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups oat bran
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
1 cup flax seeds (measure first, then grind)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Mix wet ingredients, add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
