What do you like to have for breakfast on a weekday? My breakfast routine goes like this:

  • 50% of mornings: Peanut butter and jam on toast (this is basically my default when no other baked options are available)
  • 25%: Toasted banana bread
  • 25%: Muffins, on rotation!

Muffins are so handy because they’re portable—certainly their best feature!—and you can change the flavors you use according to seasons and cravings. I have a few classic recipes on repeat, such as Blueberry Banana Muffins (my son’s favorites) and Maple and Cranberry Granola Muffins, which I always bake for the holidays.

A few years ago, I developed a citrus-based muffin recipe for my cookbook, Simply Citrus. I’d been experimenting with using whole oranges in baked goods for a while: when you boil a whole orange, its peel softens and loses its bitterness, which means you can purée it (pits and all) and use it to add incredible flavor and texture to breads and muffins. I love it because you don’t waste anything either! This Whole Orange and Maple Oatmeal Muffins recipe was one of my favorites from the book and one I’ve been making again and again since, but it didn’t end up in the published book, quite simply because it wasn’t photographed. Which means I’m really excited to finally share it with you guys! Continue Reading
