Happy Day after Valentine's day. I hope your day yesterday was sweet and filled with love whether it was your true love, your kids, your girlfriends or you furry friends. Today I am shaking off a long week and linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci and The Blended Blog for my weekly list of Friday Favorites. Let's do this.

1) Orange Cranberry Mini Muffins


This week I posted these Orange Cranberry Mini Muffins for Tasty Tuesday. These are so Good and I have been making them every week for the last couple of weeks. A perfect hint of orange and the yogurt in the recipe keeps it moist. Did I mention that I made these gluten free with King Arthur gluten free flour? And that two of these are 6 WW points...which is pretty low for a muffin? 

Tasty Tuesday: Orange Cranberry Mini Muffins


I love muffins. I typically have a muffin every morning as my breakfast because I leave the house so early and it's easy to have during my commute. I have been trying to lighten up a little bit over the past few weeks, so I worked on this Orange Cranberry recipe and it is so Good. The orange zest give it such a fresh flavor and the vanilla yogurt keeps the muffin moist.

1 cup all purpose flour (I used the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg white

6 oz low fat vanilla yogurt (I used Yoplait)

1 Tbs canola oil

1/2 medium orange

1/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray or use paper liners. 

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate, small bowl, whisk together egg white, yogurt, and oil. Zest the orange into the bowl and then give a good squeeze of the orange into the bowl.

Combine the wet and dry mixture but do not over mix. Add cranberries.

Spoon batter into each muffin tin about 3/4 full. Bake about 12 minutes until a took pick comes out clean.

These can also be made into regular size muffins. You should bake for about 15-20 minutes for regular size.

These are about 6 WW points for two.

To make Better use one element of organic flour, yogurt, oranges or cranberries. To make Best use multiple elements of organic flour, yogurt, oranges or cranberries. These are so Good with a cup of coffee in the morning.

So I have a really Good coat that I bought about ten years ago. It is a military wrap style from Tahari and I get compliments on it still to this day. Ten years is a long time to own a coat, and it has been a Good coat, but I have been feeling like it is time to get a new one.
