Orange Honey Muffins

I have been on a big muffin and scone kick over the last week or so. Anya has been, too! Lately when I ask her what she wants for breakfast, it is almost always muffins or scones. So... here is another yummy muffin for you to try! Enjoy!

Orange Honey Muffins

2 c flour

1/2 c old fashioned oats

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 c brown sugar

2 large eggs, slightly beaten

2/3 c orange juice

zest of 1 large orange

1/4 c honey

5 - 1/2 T butter, melted


1 - 1 1/2 c powdered sugar

1 T orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan well, or line with muffin papers.

Combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, salt and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl and stir. Add the eggs, orange juice, orange zest, honey, and melted butter and stir just until mixed.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until very light golden.

To make icing: Combine powdered sugar with orange juice until a smooth glaze is formed. Drizzle over warm muffins.
