Wheat Germ Muffins

Muffins taste better when they are warm, so re-heat in the oven as necessary. This recipe makes 12 muffins:


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)

1/2 cup raw wheat germ

1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup canola oil

1 teaspoon grated orange rind

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

2 large eggs

Cooking spray

1 tablespoon turbinado sugar


Preheat oven to 375°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.

Combine brown sugar, oil, rind, juice, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined.

Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

Bake at 375° for 17 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched in center.
