Do Try My Make My Day Chocolate Chip Orange Muffins!

With a delicious combination of chocolate chips, grated orange peel and a tad of cinnamon, these moist muffins are the perfect treats to serve with your Sunday brunch.  They don't require much effort and are sure to please. 

If you don't have any oranges to grate, you can always substitute a teaspoon of orange extract for the grated orange peel.  This will taste just as wonderful.

The next time you want to try a new muffin, I do hope you will attempt to make my recipe.

My Make My Day Chocolate Chip Orange Muffins

1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 egg
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of canola oil
3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 teaspoons of grated orange peel or 1 teaspoon of orange extract

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.   Beat the egg and add to the flour mixture. 

Add the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and the oil, stirring only until the flour is moistened.  Mix in the chips and peel or orange extract. 

Fill the greased or lined muffin tips and bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick or small thin knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
