Yield: 12 servings
|1 large||Navel orange; see instructions|
|½ cup||Pitted dates|
|½ cup||Lowfat buttermilk|
|3 tablespoons||Packed brown sugar|
|2 tablespoons||Unsweetened applesauce|
|2 tablespoons||Canola oil|
|1½ cup||All-purpose flour|

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.
