Grab and go blender orange muffins

Blender orange muffins

The grab and go orange muffins are the perfect pep you need to get you in on the early days to work or study. These blender orange muffins in no way skip the moist fluffy muffin part. Try out this refreshing change to your morning routine.

Half of our week starts very early for school, uni or work. This literally gives us less than 20 to 30 minutes from getting up to go time. This means the grab and go style ideas will keep us in the happy zone than tipping us to hangry.  There are three or four muffin recipes I rely on for this grab and go days.
Savory veggie loaded cheese muffin
Perfect chocolate almond muffins
Classic banana oatmeal muffins
And this blender orange muffin.
Since these recipes are not only easy but hide fruit or veggies, pairing them with a smoothie or a warm drink makes morning breakfast easy. In the packable form, the muffins are mess-free to stay for a snack too.

Ingredients  and vegan substitutions

Oranges- the navel oranges are the ones I use for making these muffins. Mandarins are ok, but much more juicier so a bit harder to control the liquid content. I haven’t experimented with the other varieties. If you do so, let me know in the comments.
Eggs- eggs are essential in this blender muffin to lift the batter. My experience with flax eggs was not the best in these orange muffins. If you manage to get a light and fluffy muffin with the egg, share the idea as a lot of our readers will benefit.
Butter I love the smell of muffins with butter in the morning. The recipe will work well with olive oil too I have successfully tried it.
Flour -for these blender muffins, I gave used sprouted whole wheat flour. You can use plain flour, millet flour (with a tbsp of corn starch) or plain whole wheat flour.

Notes

The second batch of muffins we baked had a flour mix - 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup ragi flour. The muffins were tasty, but the colour changed and there were more cracks on the top. This is because ragi is much more dry flour than wheat ( no gluten in them).

Tips to get the perfect blender muffin

As much as blender muffins are a convenience, the muffins can end up as a hard lump in no time. Hope my pointers below help you to fix this situation.
Blending the muffin mix – with blender muffins, it is easy to overmix the batter. So once you add the dry mix, just pulse till it looks combined and the muffin will turn out soft.
Dry muffins- you certainly don’t want there. The biggest issue is the ratio between the wet mix vs the dry mix. Use evenly sized juicy navel oranges. 
The dry crust on the muffins- These muffins get done really fast. So based on your oven temperature adjust the timings slightly and check with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean when poked into the muffin and withdrawn, your muffin is done, remove from the oven and cool.

Perfect grab and go partners

Strawberry lassi smoothie- if that morning is going to be a long one, add in a strawberry lassi to add some good nutrition to your body. Try the mango version if it is mango season.
Hot mint chocolate- a bite of the orange muffins with the hot chocolate creates the feeling of jaffa cakes. That’s something I love when I have chocolate with oranges.
If you are a tea lover, try out the hibiscus flower tea made with fresh flowers.

Seema, I noticed that you’ve chopped the orange and added it to the batter. Doesn’t the white part of the orange make the muffins bitter? If not, I would love to bake them,
