Orange muffins with dates - prevention

Yield: 12 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 large Navel orange; see instructions
½ cup Pitted dates
½ cup Lowfat buttermilk
1 Egg
3 tablespoons Packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons Canola oil
1½ cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Baking soda



Orange pulp and rind give these muffins a refreshing citrus flavor.

Applesauce replaces 6 tablespoons of butter.

PREP: Preheat oven to 400F. Coat 12-cup muffin tin with no-stick spray.

1. Grate the rind from the orange and set aside. Peel the orange and chop the pulp. In a food processor or blender, combine the orange pulp, dates and orange rind; chop coarsely. Add the buttermilk, egg, brown sugar, applesauce and oil; puree.

2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the orange mixture. Stir until just blended. Do not beat. Pour into muffin tin, filling cups three-fourths full.

3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
