Orange Poppy Seed Muffins

Muffins are a cheap, healthy alternative to bought granola bars for school lunches. I had been wanting to try these ones for awhile, and only recently got around to it. They are very mild, with little sugar. I think that if I make them again I would switch orange extract for the vanilla to enhance the orange flavor. The glaze ads a nice, sweet, touch.

This recipe is from Canadian Living April 2005

2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp poppy seeds
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp orange rind
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp orange juice

Pre-heat your oven to 375 F.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with a whisk. Set aside.

In a different bowl, whisk together the yogurt, orange rind, orange juice, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Pour over the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Spoon into paper lined muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a rack. Combine the glaze ingredients in a bowl and brush over the warm muffins. Let cool.

Makes 12.
