Pecan, Cranberry and Orange Muffins

Another Thinkfood Recipe, comin’ at ya!

This recipe comes from Katie of Katie Cakes. You can find the recipe here. (sadly the recipe page is no longer available 🙁 )

I’m a huge fan of muffins.  There was a long period of time where my lunch at work consisted of a muffin, Greek yogurt, and fruit.  Sometimes it still does.

I am not, however, a fan of muffins with nuts.  I like my muffins to be airy and fluffy.  That being said, the fact that there were pecans in these muffins didn’t ruin them for me.  I think they were in small enough pieces – and there weren’t very many of them – that they weren’t very noticeable.

Cranberry Orange Muffin

Overall they were pretty good.  I liked that they had a slight citrus flavor from the orange zest and juice.  I’m not a huge fan of cranberries though.

Ease: A, not hard at all – the hardest part was probably zesting and juicing the orange.
Taste: B, just ok for me.  As long as I ate around the cranberries, they weren’t bad. 😉

Would I make them again? Probably not, I just didn’t like them enough.
